We walked from our hotel to this location , it is hard to explain in words how great it looks. The stain glass windows are really cool. This is a must to walk around.

A nice place to see for the church enthusiasts. Went there just in time the mass ended so it was still open. Don't know if it's open everyday.

Pros: Some very nice architecture, both inside and out. Cons: Awkward to visit as a tourist when someone is practicing organ.

Love that this is such a surprise in such a small city. Great self guided visit. This cathedral rivals those in much larger cities.

The building is wonderful, built in the grand scale of the churches in the early 1900s. It stands out on the hill overlooking the downtown area

The exterior looks like every other cathedral, but the inside is spectacular, particularly the stained glass windows. Definitely worth a visit.
