Do not miss the stations of the cross! We have seen none better.
This cathedral is a gothic church built in the 20th century. Because it has no side chapels along the nave, the height of the church seems to soar. However, the best parts of the church are the carved stations of the cross. These are unpainted and were were done by a man who was either an orphan or else was abandoned as a small child. He grew up poor and he taught himself to carve. The 14 Stations are both traditional but also show aspects of modern life. Mother Theresa is one of the women who greet Christ., for example. On another station, World War II soldiers make up part of the crowd. The church has odd opening hours and one never knows if it closes at 4 pm or opens at 4 pm but if you can manage to get in, do not miss the Stations of the Cross. We have seen many examples and this group is our favorite...over those in Europe and eastern Europe, those in North America and others in South America.
