“pictures don't do it justice - positively striking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

I thought this cathedral was hauntingly beautiful. Pictures really don't do it's beauty (or size) justice. Wouldn't miss it.

“A pleasant new world cathedral”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

I don't think this cathedral justifies the hype it gets. It's pleasant but not unusual. The painting and stained glass are rather ordinary.
