A very beautiful 13th-century cathedral in Romanesque and Gothic style. Dominating the other constructions of the island, it is the central landmark of the old town. Its 47m high bell tower was built between the 14th and the 16th century. Climbing the bell tower, however, is challenging and not recommended for people prone to vertigo.
