A bit of a climb. There was a wedding about to start and thus really only saw the outside. We poked our heads in the door and it seemed amazingly beautiful.

This is a "must visit" location. Easy to get to from the main part of town or a short stroll up from the quayside markets.This is also a great spot to catch the hop-on-hop-off busses. The adjacent cafes serve a decent coffee as well.

The cathedral is really so beautiful! We were awed by the cathedral from afar. There are many steps leading up to the cathedral, adding to the magnificence ... must visit! It's within short walking distance from central railway station.
