A pleasant visit to an interesting old cathedral. The internal pillars are enormous, possibly to support the additional side aisles. It is approached from a very quiet square with very little in the way of bars or restaurants. There are some very expensive art shops around the square

destroyed during the war..it is back to it's original glory......a must see.. and read "All the light you cannot see" before coming to this village.. and follow the footsteps...the walls of the city are impressive....so are the tides....they are huge 2nd only to the Bay of Fundy
