This church was enormous, elaborate and ornate. Baroque style. The organ (Europe's largest pipe organ) concert showcases the power of the instrument.

This cathedral boosts a large church organ and its’ baroque style fills the interior with light. The stucco work took 15 years to complete and it is magnificent. Well worth walking to.

The Cathedral is ornate. A definite photo op. We attended the organ recital. Too heavy for us but gave us a chance to admire the interior.

Don’t know but they have a web site with times and dates I think. Personally, would give this a miss and tour the town instead.

I would think that it would be as we were moored at the furthest end of the bank and it only took us 20 minutes to walk back.

I think you can get tickets either online, or the day before. I am not sure they perform every day, again you might need to check online.
