We came across the cathedral by chance after visiting a nearby museum. An impressive building from the outside, and the inside. We are by no means religious, but could still appreciate this cathedral as an important place of worship for others. I wouldn't consider this a must see, but if you are religious or appreciate fine architecture then by all... More

Stunning and Peaceful. Wonderful place to worship or just to admire. History and contemplative silence combined with architectural beauty.. The stained glass windows are amazing especially when the lights catch them.. Not to be missed. PS : PLEASE RESPECT! you CAN NOT walk in a church with tank top and short and DON'T bring foods & drinks (leave that latte... More

We visited the St Mary's Cathedral on a Sunday afternoon. When you step into this magnificent cathedral, suddenly you are away from the noisy city, it is so peaceful inside. It is a remarkable building done in sandstones with beautiful glass windows. Inside is impressive with very high decorated ceilings. This is a must see if you are around the... More

Attended the 10.30 am Solemn Choral Sunday Mass. Amazing architecture with amazing choir. It was a full choir on that day and it was like watching a free performance. The hymns similar to Gregorian chant was sung by the choir consisting of all men. So even if you are not a Catholic, it is nice just to sit back and... More

It's a beautiful old-fashioned cathedral and it works as a grand landmark for tourism. I'm not catholic but I had the opportunity of presencing a mass and the cathedral has good acoustics and it's totally beautiful inside. There are crypts beneath it that you can pay $5 to visit but they're quite disappointing. It's a huge hall with great written... More
