We sadly did not get to see much because they were cleaning/restoring at the time of our visit. What little we did see was beautiful.

Beautiful outside. Once you step through the door you hear all the construction. What I did see was beautiful and I am sure once they are done with renovations the rest will be quite spectacular.

The inside has a lot of construction going on, but it is still possible to walk through portions of the cathedral. Clearly, the workers wish you weren't there, but oh well!!! Nice interior, especially the altar area....but you can't get close to it right now. Not huge as cathedrals go, but worth a quick visit, and it's centrally located in... More

When I visited in April 2017, the church was under renovation, so I was little disappointed by the site of scaffolding and partitions. However, it is still possible to see the very impressive top part of the high altar. I would definitely like to return to see the church when it is not under renovation.

Wonderful cathedral. The altar piece is magnificent and the sacred door a must-see. We were there while the door was open and it was very interesting

This cathedral has a different structure to avoid the cold winter to come in. The glass works are very nice also. We were lucky to come after holy Friday therefore decoration was great..

Currently under renovations, so it might be worthwhile to skip until they are complete, but it is beautiful inside and the altar piece is stunning.

Not much to see right now - most of the church is blocked off for renovation. There was no information about when it will be open.

The Cathedral is beautiful but a large part was being renovated when we were there. The windows and sanctuary are inspiring. Very center of town.
