Hopped off the city bus to see this. Truly a beautiful church and the grounds are just a lovely! If you love old churches definitely worth the stop.

We did not spend much time here, but the building is huge and had many tourists. Souvenirs are costly.

Stunning church with much history within. Unknowingly, but thankfully, arrived 15 minutes before it closed for the day (it closed at 5pm on a Tuesday). It left us in awe.

Nice architecture; also stained glass windows covering some of the chapels devoted to various saints. Worth a visit.

This Cathedral is not only a Beautiful and Humongous piece of Architecture but the vibe it emits is so calming. If not for Spirituality, do visit to enjoy its beauty.
