Located along a busy pedestrian street. Not far from the main avenue. The cathedral is beautiful. Plan to spend 30 minute here. Free admission. Donations are welcome.

I️ managed to get to cloistered area and was fantastic. I️ am not a religious person but spiritual. I️ felt good being there and light few candles and moment of reflection. Try it. You may like it!

A beautiful and apparently popular church in the historical center of the city. It stands out due to the interesting mélange of building styles across more than a millenium. Bring a guide book to learn about the details about the building.

A beautiful cathedral worth visiting! You may be lucky enough to experience mass and that will be a wonderful bonus as it was for us!
