Nice garden to the left (what a pity that in spite of signage forbidding dogs on the grass dog owners anyway come with their pupils and treat it as its own private toilet. I am a dog owner too but I hate when people don't have respect to others properties). Anyway, don't forget to look closer at the beautiful front... More

Attended Saturday evening mass an Friday adoration. Friendly, welcoming parishioners. Visitors may be interested in architecture, exquisite detail. Photo taking allowed, but make sure to be respectful of worshippers.

The beautiful creation of the majestic stairs, the holy water, the colors within each of the windows brought such peace and I was humbled to feel the presence of the "Holy, the Greatness and the service of amazing Givers.

This cathedral is right in the middle of the plaza, you can't miss it. It is a gorgeous place and will only take you 30 minutes to stop and see everything. Great history and story. I think it cost us 2 dollars each to see.

Visited to hear the Canadian Brass concert. Acoustics were perfect for baroque style music (though it was fine for jazz, pop, and more).

This is a great Cathedral to visit, it isn't out of the way (very close to the Plaza) and is quite accessible. Despite what I read online, it IS open on weekends, so if you read that don't fret, barring a special event (or service hours) it will be open.
