“Majestic”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

I am not one for viewing churches, but my wife needed a driver for the day. The shear magnificence of the cathedral standing on the hill is awe inspiring. There was a wedding on and the vintage car added to the ambiance. The decor and opulence inside just has to be seen and the stained glass windows are beautiful. It was like taking a step back in time, and it was a pleasure to witness such workmanship of art on the floors, alters and ceilings. A must to be seen.
