This cathedral in the City square is a small place to see and you wont take long to see. It is worth a visit as you usually pull up here in the bus. There is much more to see in the square nearby

Spend a little time here looking inside this small but adored simple place of worship. Plenty to photograph inside and out, opposite the main plaza it's easy to get too.
