If you are expecting a huge gothic pile, you will be disappointed. This is essentially an upgraded parish church, fairly small in size. However, there are some points of interest, such as the shields representing most of the US States, and the Eisenhower flag. The...More

this was very interesting if for no other reason than the history involved. The stain glass windows are incredible and definitely worth studying. Not much more to say: if you love history and church interiors, don't miss it. If you don't nothing I can say...More

I was a bit disappointed because I was expecting a cathedral, but it's more like a local church! It's beautiful still, but not very different from others you see in other cities.

Georgian Gothick and 1930s modern gothic. Small but charming. Friendly welcome for tourists. Much more pleasant experience than the aesthitic disaster of the Catholic cathedral.

Strikingly, only sections of the two tall end walls of the grand cathedral really remain, along with some of the outer structures like the cloister walls. It's largely a graveyard now, punctuated by the remains of the cathedral, but walking among them gives you a...More
