“This looks much bigger on TV”. Ok, we know. But that is only because for the festivals’ Opening Ceremony on July,6th this gets really crowded!

All over the centuries this building has been the seat for kings, bishops and general captains of the army – history in pure form.

Cathedral of Saint Mary

This “beautiful lady with donkey ears” has one of the best preserved Gothic cloisters in Europe, amongst many other surprises.
