Fabulous Old Cathedral

Located on the edge of downtown this cathedral stands out with the impressive architecture, stained glass windows and nicely maintained grounds.

Here is the Cathedral you might want to visit. I would suggest for you to join the Mass, the choir was beautiful. I really love the architecture, so beautiful!
