It is a free and accesibile location and my advice is to visit it in any day except from Sunday late morning. They have masses and the cathedral is really cowded. It is an istorical location and it is worth seeing it.

It was built in the Byzantine style with Moorish arabesques. The exterior is ornate and elaborate, very different from any other churches which we visited. It is one of the most beautiful churches that I... More

There are many legends associated with the building of this cathedral, including the death of the architect's wife who was sacrificed to ensure the building success. According to legend she is buried within the exterior walls of the cathedral. Regardless of gory legends, this... More

Breathtaking orthodox church, especially at first glance from the outside. The cathedral looks like a silver jewel, every inch of it is stunningly ornamented in great detail and shiny colors. The inside also surprised us, as we discovered that this church was much older than we expected, having been built in the Byzantine style in the 16th century. The church... More
