Not your usual Cathedral type building, but lovely inside and was a lovely place to sit and reflect. Main church closed when private services taking place, otherwise open all day.

Built of lava this small cathedral is not as decadent inside as many catholic churches. The ante room chapel with the crypt is worth a look as well. The painting of the Pope in the pulpit makes it look like he's there from certain angles!

A very interesting cathedral - quite unusual - and some fascinating architectural features. Look for the misalignment in the interior

This is a rather small and dour cathedral, without any outstanding features, but if you are in Adge you may as well have a look inside, if you can avoid the idiots with their flash photography.
