Went here one Sunday to attend Mass and it was a pretty good time. From outside it does not look too grand but the great surprise was coming inside and seeing all the artwork throughout the cathedral. It was well-kept and one would just feel like the cathedral is their private sanctuary to pray and be reflective.

I have traveled around Europe and find this one of the most beautiful churches in the world. It is not a highlight for children but teenagers should appreciate the beauty. Every time I visit I see more than the time before. The sound is outstanding for church services.

The first striking thing: it was pretty warm inside, so this Cathedral was heated, a pleasant bonus to be able to warm up a... More

Even on a rainy day the church was beautiful. So much to admire - floor to ceiling. Well worth a stop. Outdoor space is nice as well.
