Very serene Church

A very calm atmosphere in this very plain Cathedral, but worth the climb to the top of the stairs. Has a huge organ beautifully decorated.

We regularly to this cathedral. It's high above the city and the inside is a beautiful. There are always many visitors/tourists here. You'll love this location to just relax and view the city and landmark building. Walking in the city is easy and due to the height you can find the cathedral easily.

It's a nice church stands out in the public. A very white, decent church, not like those in milan nor paris one, simple design and neat, gives u a peaceful mind.

Part of the Senate Square, which is a huge public space, in which tourists stop for picture opportunity.

Okay, I'm drawn to old churches like a moth to a lamp. (Thankfully, I don't combust.) Beautiful inside and out. Pipe organ was being serviced while I was there, so didn't gt a chance to listen to that lovely feature.

Really wanted to see this church on the inside, but unfortunately it was closed due to maintenance. Outside is beautiful and we díd get to see the crypt.
