Fodor's Review

The cathedral is an impressive sight. Begun in 1755 and completed in 1766, it is the antithesis of the decadent Abbey Library nearby, alhough the nave and rotunda are the work of the same architect, Peter Thumb. The scale is outsize and the decor light, bright, and open, despite spectacular excesses of wedding-cake trim.
