The inside of the cathedral is imposing. It is full with all sorts of decorations: paintings, sculptures, frescoes. You will be astonished to see them in a Romanesque church and you would be right. The interior is not romanesque at all, but manneristic (mannerism is the artistic style between Gothic and baroque). I will not write here all the masterpieces you can admire in the church.
These pictures show the nave, the frescoes on the arcades, near the high altar and on the domes. Sorry for their bad quality.
