Long Description:
The New Cathedral was built directly at the north side of the Old Cathedral. (visit link) When you visit the Old Cathedral you have to use the entrance of the New Cathedral. The Old Cathedral is much smaller than the New Cathedral (that is the reason why a new building was required in 1513).

Inside of the Old Cathedral is inter alia a big altarpiece, old organs, graves. You can also visit the tower of the cathedral. In former times the tower was also used for defense.

You can see more pictures on the website of the church (and read in spanish) (visit link) or on Wikipedia in English: (visit link) or German: (visit link)
