“A Beautiful Old, but Active Catholic Church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

We passed by in the early evening on our way to dinner and stopped by because there was a service going on. The lighting was beautiful and there was a lovely small chapel beside the main church that was so lovely and sweet.

“Old World Flair”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

Look at the building construction in detail. If you have a zoom lens look at the detail of the sculptures and bell. Good area to walk around and sight see and shop.

“Beautiful Building!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

I think this was my favorite part of the Old City. The square in front of it is a very nice place to sit and relax...

“One of the best photos that I have ever taken of a church at night was here”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

If you are in the old city it is worth a visit. If you are not in the old city you should visit and make a stop at the church.

“typical old cathedral”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

Not much to say, not spectacular, it is a typical old church. It was not open to go inside so can only judge by the outside. It is a good reference point when wondering the area. Even if it had been open I don't think it was spectacular enough to make us want to go inside.
