By means of a careful interaction of text and images, this guide conveys the sense of the Cathedral as a working institution and dynamically brings to life the history of the Cathedral. The guide presents accessible information about the Cathedral, by means of a walking guide divided into small sections, which highlight such features as the West Door, the Nave and Crypt. The use of plans and colour coding also helps orientate the visitor easily through the Cathedral complex. Images of special events and processions, as well as architectural details, reinforce the notion of the Cathedral as a living community and evoke the essential spirit of this magnificent building.
