Discover, experience and enjoy: over 900 years of extraordinary history; our famous starlight ceiling; our treasury exhibition; active family trails; an oasis of peace and prayer in the heart of the city with beautiful monastic gardens, award-winning café and unique gift shop.

There are fascinating stories of faith, hope and love to discover here. They point to God who is at work among us now and who welcomes all. Whether you are of this faith, another faith, or no faith at all, we look forward to welcoming you.
