Such a beautiful Cathedral and well worth a visit. I sometimes come to the early morning mass prior to going to work, has a feeling of serenity about the place. The alter and windows are stunning.

Attended the Cathedral as it was not part of a tour and it was a pleasant experience. It was quiet and peaceful place inside with a well tended garden and shrine outside.

While walking in the area, I stopped to admire the interesting looking outside of this church. The very tall steeple has many fancy stone features.
