Unexpected find of a 20-th century cathedral. Look out for JFK mosaic, enjoy modern look and feel. Worth a brief visit

Beautiful stain glass windows.

They really knew how to build a church! The cruciform shape, the fabulous stained glass windows, the awe-inspiring height. Don't miss the little shrine to President Kennedy, an Irish-American descendant who made good. As cool old churches go, I think you will like it.

Only 50 years old - last stone built Cathedral to have been built in Europe and well worth a visit. The Stations of the Cross were of particular interest and the whole layout including the modern stained glass windows and mosaics excellent.
