Gorgeous gothic church in the Prado neighbourhood. Lots of history here. Unfortunately it wasn't open when we arrived but still nice to see from the outside.

People used to have their wedding in this pretty church. Prado was a neighborhood for upscale society, nowadays not so. It was one of the oldest neibourhood with big houses, lovely gardens and quite big plots.

In the heart of the newer part of Prado neighbourhood, this emblematic church symbolizes the importance of this city area.

Beautiful. Very beautiful. Saw just from outside. I was admiring it. So you believe in God or no that's not the case. You will feel the attention to details and quality.

This cathedral is almost a replica of Noter Dame in Paris. It is beautiful inside as most European Churches. You can only see the church during services or mass otherwise this church is closed

Took me a while to find this gothic looking cathedral, but glad I did. There happened to be services when I arrived so I did not get inside pictures, but it's beautiful inside.

We found this church along a tree lined walk and went inside. The church was just inspiring with any wonderful carvings.
