    The castle of the city suffered from different wars, included the one of 100 years as the town changed its side many times. The ruins you see are in a nice park from which you can see large parts of the town as well as the beautiful landscape suurounding the area.

    This church is quite interesting as it was built between the 12th and 16th century. This long time of construction was cause by wars and religious conflicts in which the town chnaged its side quite often. So sometimes, the church had to be reconstructed. You will discover many different styles, from primitive gothic to pure renaissance style. Similar to most catholic cathedrals in the region, this church is decorated with impressive vitrals.

    The structure itself is one of many masterpieces of gothic architecture. The church has a size of around 70 meters and a height of 24. For a better observation of the different styles it is recommendated to go into the church, but to visit the castle as well. From there you can see the whole church and get also some information about it.
