You probably did notice the entrance doors and surrounding sculptures when entering the Cathedral, but you were too busy trying to get in to really stop and take a good look at them. Hahaha, that's what happened to me anyway. But please do remember them when leaving the Cathedral. Turn around and look up, I am sure you'll be amazed! The sculptures and carving are amazing and so many that it is hard to know exactly where to look. From saints, to biblical scenes, to strange demon-like figures ornate these entrance doors.
