Was fortunate enough to be in Moerlia for the weekend. At night they have a light and fireworks display to please the tourists, as well as the locals. The Cathedral its very nice and centrally located. So much to see and do all around it.

Right in the city center and amazing to see. Tons of history and you have to see it at night to appreciate the cathedral even more.

Lovely during the day but irresistible at night. Enjoy the inside, but sit on the plaza and enjoy the view from the Lu.
