Not spectacular in any way, and, surprisingly, hard to find! Unusually dar even for a Cathedral. There has been no upkeep in recent years.

Nice Cathedral.. There is no crowd so very nice for shooting but difficult as there is no big space around. I did enjoy it a little :)

Th building is quite plain outside, but lovely within - the city idiots graffiti is sprayed on outside walls. The interior is lovely and well worth an hour or more of your time.

You can almost miss it , passing by it in the street . The massive structure is not as impressive on the outside , But the inside is stunning ! don't miss the opening hours .

Stunning cathedral. It looks almost stern from the outside but the inside is like a jewel, with gold leaf everywhere, an enormous organ and colourful stained glass windows. We attended the 10:30 am Sunday mass and found the choir and organ music very lovely.
