The guide was very prepared and for the first two hours of the tour he showed us the best of the cathedrals the third visit had to be the cathedral was very quick and lasted only 15 minutes after which he greeted us and left, interrupting the tour half a minute now before the end of the purchased package this took us a little off guard and did not leave us satisfied as the cathedral was the most important church
