Since I pre-ordered the tickets, we were able to enter through the main entrance without a long queue, everything worked very well because the tickets could also be accessed offline. Yes, the cathedral is simply gigantic, you have to see and experience it.

Beautiful cathedral. There were no lines so not sure if the skipping the line ticket was necessary. One suggestion is to Gar better signage on how to enter the Cathedral from the street.
