“Worth a quick visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2013

Bigger and grander than it seems from the out side. Interesting and worth knowing something of the history too.

“Colorful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2013

The cathedral was open at night, and the ceiling is beautiful. It is a must see in an accessable downtown location right on the square.
