The cathedral was originally a Benedictine Priory, refounded in 1541 as a cathedral. The main body was built between 1093 and 1130, with alterations and additions made in the 13th and 15th centuries.
The eight-bay nave has a north and south arcade with alternating compound and circular piers. The north and south aisle walls have a blind arcade with overlapping round-headed arches on paired piers.
