This beautifully positioned cathedral is well worth a visit, especially to see the stained glass windows. The quiet atmosphere and respectful behaviour of the visitors is noteworthy, adding to the atmosphere.

The façade of Cathedrale Saint Vincent is quite interesting, though conspicuously lacking in sculpted ornamentation. The cathedral seems to have been designed to impress the viewer with its sheer massiveness and symmetry, not beauty or grace. Interestingly, one of the structure's huge towers – the one on the right as you face the church -- is out of plumb. When... More

In front of this Cathedral, you will see Sunday market. There would be cafe in the square, where you can see the beautiful front of the church.
