Immediately north of the Domtoren, find the row of paving stones that mark the extents of the nave – across this extent is the Domkerk, the surviving chancel of the cathedral, with a few tombs within. A tour includes a look at the treasury (Schatkamer), which is slowly being excavated and reopened; tickets are sold at the tourist office. Back outside, look for new markers showing extents of the Roman town.
