Came to this town as part of a river cruise. Easy walk from the cruise dock to this church. Outside, in the back reminded me of Notre-Damn in Paris. Inside has a lot of stunning class. Only disappointment, no candles to light.

Huge, beautiful, well maintained and so very central. Our guide spoke to us in the Cathedral although she was not supposed to. She was told to keep quiet. She just wanted to point out the wonderful features of this place of worhship.

I’ve never seen a cathedral with a crown on top so to me that makes this cathedral unique. We went inside but did not take photos. The exterior has colorful artwork.
