Such a sight. Do not miss the opportunity to visit this amazingly beautiful cathedral. Bring your camera. The stone carvings, altar and paintings are magnificent.

This is a beautiful cathedral on the outside; however, at 9:45 AM, it was locked. We therefore missed seeing the inside.

the architecture is unbelieable. You need to slowly walk around the Cathedral inside and outside --so as not to miss anything.

There was a lady in the basilica that told us a lot about the history of the place. She was also very familiar with the tradition and how the church is used nowadays. We had a nice talk!
