This cathedral escaped from the big earthquake a century ago. Some say it's a miracle, some notice that it is built from wood and without screws (which makes it anti-seismic). Anyway a nice small cathedral in the heart of a nice park.

A house of spirit for every Christian. Last time was there on The Transfiguration of Our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ.

You'll have 10 nice mins looking at the cathedral. It's beautiful. But who cares whether it was built with nails or without. You'll want to go explore the park pretty soon. Walk around some more 10 mins and you're done with this place. Don't plan any extended rest or even a picnic with your kidz here.
