“Amazing history..”

My partner and i were in the cathedral taking photos (without a flash of course) when a local approached us and gave us an amazing tour of the cathedral - including its history. Defiantly worth the look

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

If memory serves me right, the monies to build this church were donated by a man whose only request was that his son would serve as the priest here until he died. This church also has the only know painting of Mary, mother of Jesus, pregnant. We had an English speaking guide and it was wonderful. Set on the city Square, beautiful and well worth the visit.
