Old but beautiful building at the head of the square. Walked in as Mass was about to start- ordination of new priests- and it was a spiritual upliftment.

Located in the main square, this is a great place to visit if you are in the area. The Cathedral's construction started in 1805 and took 111 years to complete. If you have time, take a look inside its well worth the effort.
