I am afraid this was not a good experience. There is very little carving . The best I can say is that the stained glass windows are nice. To make the experience worse there was a beggar who I gave a few pennies to and he then followed us menacing around the place.

This is just a lovely peaceful place amid the bustle of a busy city. Access is strange in that it is one floor up through a three or four storey craft market which in itself is worth a wander. Such a shame that the frontage is marred by traffic but nevertheless, worth a visit.

This is one of the few well kept buildings in this area of the city. It is quite near the central mercantile. Although it is a bit walk up from the beach area the inside is beautiful old world design.

Quite dark (polluted) stone, it has a mysterious look from the outside. Inside it is white and luminous but cold. Here you will feel the cold distance between Jesus and the people.

This is a bit of a concrete block compared to most Cathedral I have seen, but there are some pretty stained glass windows.
