Got a lot of information on the cathedral but did not get in because it was so hot, our guide on the On Off Trolley was so good about the dates and the marble on the altar was from Italy.

Only street parking is available but usually there are places available. The cathedral also is a designated stop on the bus and trolley tours, on/off all day.

Like the other people who have replied to this question I do not believe that there are any such Holy Relics on display in this Cathedral.
