Well worth a visit. Huge organ, beautiful frescoes on ceilings, a good place to say a prayer to thank God for His goodness.

There are 5 separate organs to play by one person at the same time. Excellent organ recital at noon and 5 Euro to enter. No recording allowed, but you can buy cd in the end.
A beautiful Baroque cathedral, sadly when we visited it was undergoing major restoration work. I’m certain that when all is completed it will look fabulous.
