Although relatively modern,this is still a beautiful building with a really peaceful, relaxing atmosphere. We enjoyed our visit, sometimes it is nice just to sit and reflect.

Holds a commanding view on the skyline. Visitors are welcome to view this beautiful Roman Catholic Cathederal. Masses are frequent and you can spend time looking st the wonderful stain glass windows. The altar has been modrrnised but is very tasteful

We attended Easter Sunday mass at 12 noon, what a spectacular historical building. The cathedral was surprisingly warm and comfortable on such a bitterly cold morning and the whole experience was very spiritual.

I liked its location on the rising hills. From here one can see the city below, especially the west wall of the city. The high vaulted city has magnificent acoustics. It is worth while to visit when there is a service and the choir is singing. The vigil Mass at Christmas was an exceptional experience.

I went to mass here on Sunday in May. I brought my camera with me and was taking pictures after mass. The priest came up to me after mass with a welcoming smile and asked where I was from and he made me feel very welcome. I really enjoyed my experience here. This is a beautiful Catholic church in historic... More
