If you walk out the front of the cathedral go 1 block and take a right 1 block past the tourist office you will see this little memorial, it is worth a look.
The Stained glass windows are all in the process of being cleaned, you can really see the difference between the cleaned and uncleaned windows.

This is the very back of the cathedral. You can see the windows of the ambulatory area behind the altar.
I walked around the south side, if I remember correctly :)
