“glitz everywhere!”
Reviewed 29 December 2012

visited in september 2011. walking in from the street you'd never expect such a show of opulence! so incredible and the history is amazing. gilded gold everywhere-it's like you're bathed in yellow glam on the inside. construction started in the 1500s-it doesn't get much older than that around here! it was also cool to watch the art students outside who were sketching the building.

“Odd looking on the outside, beautiful inside”
Reviewed 7 September 2011

Tremendous mix of architectural styles on the exterior - check out the native-styled angels - and a lovely interior with frescos from the 19th century. Free to get in, so good for a wee look around.

“If you like architecture this is worth a visit”
Reviewed 14 August 2011

This Cathedral was started in 1577 and took over 200 hundreds years to complete. The church looks as if it is one architectural piece, but the closer you look, the more you can identify the different influences of the various architects over the years. Cool architecture and history here.
