“Good Friday mass was special in this Cathedral”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

The inside of this cathedral reminds me of the cathedrals of Europe. There are arched ceilings with murals and large stained glass windows with biblical scenes. This is a very beautiful place to see. The outside was covered with scaffolding, so we couldn't see the outside well, but go inside and be overwhelmed.

“Wow!”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

I am not a religious person but we were all in awe of this landmark. Unfortunately the outside was under construction, but we were able to walk through this majestic church. It is absolutely a must see for all who enjoy beauty, detail and great architectural detail.

“Under Construction”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

The outside of the cathedral has scaffolding all around it so it was hard to get a real picture of the outside however, the inside was beautiful and unexpected. The ceiling was so beautifully painted and adorned.
For such an old cathedral it was in beautiful repair.

“Beautiful cathedral”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Unfortunately the exterior is under scaffolding due to loose bricks in the steeples. The interior is open. Beautiful stained glass. Nice for a quick visit while walking around the historic district.

“Sorry it was underconstruction”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Beautiful church on the inside. Well maintained and cared for. Since the church is old, it is easy to understand that it needs frequent care and restoration so I was unable to get the full experience of viewing it from the outside.
