This church is known as the locals version of the Vatican and I must say the building interior is very beautiful with the high dome white ceilings and great architecture. I loved the old pictures on the walls and the woodwork on the confession boxes...More

Not the inside, which is clean - apart from a roped-off area where falling stones have shattered. It's the outside of the church which needs (a) sandblasting to remove centuries of grime and (b) restoration of stained glass, covered by wire mesh. Requires an infusion...More

Nice to stop by quickly, but you've seen it all within a couple of minutes. Wouldn't recommend unless you accidentally parked your car right next to it as I did. The organ is very impressive though!

As member of the Military and Hospitaller Order of St Lazarus we had a service in the Cathedral. Music, singer and service was in old tradition. Just fantastic

The cathedral is worth seeing. Renovations have been look very close to being complete. The marble and wood carvings are amazing.
