This Cathedral was one of the best that i've visit. So well made with the roof in wood. The altar is in the center and also have little capelas inside. Really nice place to visit.

Amazing when the sun streams thru the stained glass windows. Truly quite beautiful. Huge place, high ceilings. Open to enjoy, and it's free. You won't need a ton of time, just a quick visit to capture the beauty.

When you walk into the Cathedral and light is hitting the pain glass windows the Cathedral was perfect. We had just stopped in and there was no service going on but you could see it is a special place to worship.
