The view from atop the church is great. The museum was ok, not very relevant unless you are catholic.

This cathedral has a modern interior which means it is not "more of the same". I loved the painted ceilings which were so beautiful and the stained glass was so striking. There is a small chapel for prayers which I used which was stunning -...More
