Ok enough of the exterior of the cathedral lets go have a look inside - there is no admission charge but you do need to have a guide for the choir area. The main treasure here is the "Shrine of the Three Kings", which is behind the high altar. Its a materpiece of goldsmith's art and took 40 years to complete (begun 1181).
