Thank you for visiting the Cathedral and taking the time to review it. The ‘modern’ parts of the Cathedral do indeed draw comment fortunately mostly positive. It is certainly worth visiting if only to contrast the different styles in a Cathedral built over 3 centuries....More

This cathedral is amidst a fair bit of business and hospital buildings but stands out for its beautiful architecture and a sense of calm. They have recently completed some renovations and this makes the place even better from a new plus old combination.More

The church is masterfully renovated, blending the new elements of the church with the facades and structures of the old. The interior, in lieu of the refurbishment is bright and spacious, very welcoming.
