This place is stunning inside. Well worth a look just to see the artwork, painted ceilings and stained glass windows. If you are passing by do pop in and take a look.

You don't have to be at all religious to appreciate the amazing beautiful features of this cathedral!! We were allowed to take pictures inside, which to be honest do t show the true magnificence of it! Even my teenage daughter enjoyed it!

Made a point of visiting the town of Neapoli to see the cathedral, and was not disappointed, the building architecture is splendid.

Fortunately a young man came to open up the doors so... More

We always love to spend a couple of hours in Neapoli, it's a working town that sees few visitors so it's a chance to see how the locals conduct their day to day lives. But one specific reason to stop by here today is to see the amazing cathedral dedicated the the Virgin Mary. It stands in a lofted position... More
