The romanesque-style Cathedral, with parts dating back to the 12th century and a facade built in 1711, was dynamited by the fleeing Germans, despite promises it would be left intact, just before the town was liberated on 24 November 1944. Only the walls remained standing. The cathedral was reconstructed in an identical style and re-dedicated in 1974.
