almost impossible to find parking without walking long distances. There is a kids park across street which is part of the problem. Weekend is not the time to visit.

St. Mary's is in excellent condition for its' age. It is a nice example of the architectural style that was prevalent at the time it was built.

We were at Mass in the Cathedral and were notified of this concert by The San Jose State University Choraliers & The West Valley College Singers. Magnificient. Beautiful music enjoyed by the audience and the atmosphere in the Cathedral was wonderful. Beautiful voices and beautiful people.

This is an old Cathedra. We went there for Sunday Mass. It is within walking distance of the town centre. The massive grey stone is the same, exterior and interior. It is not that big for a Cathedral, but impressive nonetheless.

We were staying opposite on the Main Street so using the cathedral car park next to the church. We don't have a lot of interest in churches but decided to pop in for a look as its so impressive from the outside. It's lovely with fabulous stained glass windows and a quite peaceful atmosphere.

This Cathedral was one of the best that i've visit. So well made with the roof in wood. The altar is in the center and also have little capelas inside. Really nice place to visit.

The church itself was beautiful. Definitely worth a look. The parking lot is busy and tight. Early morning is probably a good time to visit before crowds get to big.

We attended mass on Sunday @ St. Mary's. Plenty of places to park if you drive to the church and lots to see. Everything is marked really well and you can walk around to take in the history.
