Unfortunately the Cathedral was closed for renovations and we cannot get in. However it’s worth the trip as we got nice picture of the Cathedral from the outside.

We were there around that area and saw this magnificent building. Sadly, it was undergoing major renovation. But worth watching the beautiful architecture.

Absolutely stunning building but unable to get inside due to the refurbishment. Lovely statue of Mary outside too. Lots of people outside flogging souvenirs
