This beautiful Gothic cathedral was once simply a massive parish church. Built in the fifteenth century, it was not until the nineteenth century that it became a cathedral. It is one of the two best known symbols of the city. Within the cathedral is a dark story of its construction and a deal with the devil. It is said that the extremely quick building time of the church (twenty years) was because of this deal and the story ends with the devil's footprint just a few meters inside the front door. The full story can be found next to the footprint for those who are curious.
