I certainly recommend visiting this wonderful cathedral. The interior is quite something to behold. I am told the windows were imported and may have ground stones of jewels in them

The German made stained glass windows are created with brilliant colors depicting scenes from the bible , mostly about Christ. There was liturgical music playing softly to enhance the experience. Though over 100 years old it is well kept with a clean unstained exterior.

This question is too broad but if it is church related I would say the Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s Basilica in Rome

It was open when we were there on a weekday afternoon. I suggest you just go there. If it is not open, then wyou will still have seen some interesting houses along the way.
