Wow..I was amazed by the architecture. The sight is breathtaking. Once you are inside you get to see all the idols and beautifully carved.
There was nothing as such i disliked.

“Impressive Cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

The exterior architecture is very impressive and must be viewed fro m multiple angles and distance, to fully appreciate its splendor. The interior does not match the high standard and richness of the exterior design.

“A lovely step back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We were there for Palm Sunday and attended a lovely service. The church itself is very interesting, particularly for its place in the history of this area. There was also a wedding there that we were lucky enough to see. All the traditional trappings and excitement made it a very special moment. A big plus for the visit.
