    If you worship on Sunday mornings at 9, are you able to walk through the cathedral and others parts of it as well, or do I still need to reserve tickets?

    If you go to Mass on Sunday morning, are you still able to tour the cathedral after? Or do you need tickets as well?

      Hi Mark, As far as I know they only hold special masses in the main church. The basic masses are done in the basement which is a separate entrance. You'll have to buy tickets to see the rest of it, unfortunately. Cheers.
