Every time I enter this cathedral, the word "splendid!" comes to mind over and over again. It's a remarkably beautiful church, inside and out.

Last visited this church 20 years ago. I live 125 miles away and made a visit while in town. The cathedral is well kept and the stain glass windows are beautiful.

Have been attending mass with a friend. For many years I viewed this beautiful cathedral from the outside but I never imagined the beauty that was held inside. Magnificant. The mass is very welcoming to all.

The architecture is magnificent and while its facade is rather unremarkable, the interior is majestic. It is a must see a few steps away from the Capitol Building, which offers tours. A must see.

When you walk inside the cathedral you will say WOW. You could sit there all day and just be in amazement of the structure.

I believe that you are able to take photos unless there is a mass going on.
