This is a great church. It is beautiful on the inside. The services I attended were excellent. Take the time to spend some time here in quiet prayer.

This was a great cathedral to visit. It was right by our hotel and we saw brides getting married each day. Worth the visit.

We were told they give a tour, but did not take one. There was a tour going on while we were there & it looked informative. There is a pamphlet explaining all about... More

Made for some great pictures outside but the benches out front were full of homeless sleeping in the middle of the day.
