@gemlog Some cathedrals here charge admission, yes.
They aren't funded by taxes here, and maintaining a centuries-old building with hundreds or thousands of visitors each day has a cost. But services are always free!
@artsyhonker I remember (vaguely) going to that cathedral when I was little. Perhaps they charged even then?
All I remember was being creeped out to learn there were dead people under the floor! :-)
