Dom St. Stephan reviews
Under renovation just you can still see the ceiling and the detail on them, not only a big building but also with some interesting paintings. more »
A fantastic building and a must see. When we visited there was some building works in progress (updating of electrics) however, it didn’t destruct from the beautiful interior. I am sure there’s lots..... more »
Definite must see. Moderate hike from the docks but worth the effort. Most of the shops and boutiques along the way offer a variety of gifts and food items
The cathedral is beautiful but the outside is under restoration construction so it's difficult to walk around it plus you can't get good photos without having construction vehicles in the pictures. The interior is quite beautiful though.
