This is one of the stops on the Trolley Tour. We have a bit of time to go in and see the incredible architecture and stain glass windows of this stunning cathedral. If you have an opportunity, drop in to take a peak. It's beautiful.

This is a beautiful church! Very nice stained glass scenes. The phone camera probably wouldn't capture all its glory. If interested in really good shots, bring a really good full function camera.
