This is simply one of the most beautiful cathedrals I have ever been in. Each station of the cross is a large diarama of sculptures. Very beautiful. Many beautiful stained glass windows.

This is a beautiful church located in the historic district. It is within walking distance from anywhere in the historic district and the trolley makes a stop here.
