Iconic catholic church is a great place to visit as tourist or worship. Built with sandstone, it is a great attraction.

This is an impressive cathedral. The yellow light falling from the windows created nice atmosphere. The garden around the church is very nice.

Spectacular building and surrounding gardens, shame it was not open when we visited as it would have been lovely to be able to explore the gardens and statues in the gardens and also be able to view the inside of this magnificent building

If you like churches you’ll love this one. It’s iconic in it’s representation of Catholicism with a vast nave and grandeur plus.

The colours are rich, deep and pristine. It is a good tourist attraction. I take friends and family over here, and they do get pretty cool photos out of it. Worth a stop for 30-60 mins.

Yes, you can enter when there are no services. It would be best to contact the Cathedral to ask opening hours.
