We had read that noon hour prayers were offered at this cathedral. We decided to time our visit to that. We were handed a program with the words and music to follow along with the order of servic. We were wondering how the singing would sound with just a few people participating. However they used taped choral music which was just lovely to hear.

Located in the city center. Quite large, majestic and significant. Interestingly, you can climb the balustrade of the Cathedral and the tower (for a fee). At the top you can see stone carved figures decorating the Cathedral from a close distance. Also on top of a wonderful view of the city and the river.
