Really enjoyed seeing this. Stained glass and architecture inside are beautiful. Very interesting to see La Conquistadora as well. There was a volunteer that day who was very friendly and knowledgeable about the cathedral and the people who have worshipped there over the years.

Such a beautiful and historic cathedral. I love spending time here in quiet contemplation. There is such a sense of peace, and I am not a religious person at all!

The free shuttle from the Visitor Info Center dropped us off here, a great place to start. We walked around the grounds, but did not go in because there was a bereavement service in progress. The Church and grounds are beautiful and a great place...More
