The stroll up to reach this cathedral is very lovely and picturesque and this place of worship is situated in the walled part of the upper city. The Cathedral is in general quite austere but peaceful with very nice interior. Really worth the exercise

The Cathedral is nice and stands overlooking the old city. It is nicely decorated and some woodcarvings are very nice.

If you are in the old town, it is worrth a detour up to the cathedral, althought the route we took required uss climbing steps. However, at the top we noticed it could be accessed by car.
