From outside it looks like a regular church or cathedral, but go inside and once the entrance fee paid (4-8 euros) and the handset guide taken, your walk into surprises starts.... I am not going to describe you as you need to discover and experience...More

The effect from the sunshine light going through the windows is amazing!!! Beautiful place!!! In the evening, when the blue sky is fading, the effect of the open façade is wonderful.

We thought the price of admission was reasonable. They let you climb up a spiral staircase to an area of the roof, where you can look over the whole city. Beautiful art and glass, brilliant architecture.

Worth a visit. Fabulous architecture. Entry fee was almost 5 euros each, an audio guide is included in the fee. Worth every penny to visit this wonderful place .

This cathedral may not seem much from the outside but the beauty lies within. The outdoor areas of the church are just as impressive as the indoor parts. Check out the amazing views from the outdoor terrace and head down to the basement afterwards to...More
