We wandered into the cathedral to get out of the rain. And we found that we felt like we were in a basilica in Italy. It is absolutely beautiful and well worth the visit.

Very beautiful cathedral. We were greeted by a guide who gave us a quick overview and then left us alone to explore while offering to assist as needed. Very nice gift shop with good supply of hard to get religious medals.

I'm sorry we only visit in the summer. It's a fully functional church so I would say yes. You can always google their name.
