The cathedral has the effect of a huge ship red brick ( traditional material in the region) . The foothills in the form of small semi-circular towers that blend into the wall and accentuate the verticality of the building. To the west, a tower 78 meters above the town . It has four levels , separated by galleries balustrade and built on a more reduced. The first level , massive, almost blind and flanked by four turrets , foothills imposing diameter. Decoration different levels Tapering : overcome deadly arc discharge for the first two blind arches and mullioned windows for the third , octagonal tower , pierced by a double level of twin bays and ended with a terrace for last .
The main entrance , which once stood in the west, as is the tradition , now located in the south (from the late fifteenth century). It was at this time that in the late Gothic style , was added at the door a canopy . It breaks the unity of the wall : the rich slice decor with the rigor of the walls of the cathedral , and the color of the stone used , white (limestone) contrasts with the red brick.
Canopy arches are overly complex ( profusion of ribs ) .
The arches of the gate house St. Peter and St. Paul , and many angels, some carrying the instruments of the Passion.
