Very impressed by this cathedral and its history and rebuilding after being badly damaged in WWll. Beautiful church, out-buildings, courtyards, crypts and of course the window of the three hares.

I love cathedrals, you can see the part of the history, touch it and smell it. I like the hallway with jesus sacrifice sculptures on the wall.
