It's a big stone Church and is the main Church of the City. It's quite accessible and located at the heart of the city, across the main square. They have noon Masses so it's very convenient for people to go to.

Its located in the city centre, and its close to several other attractions so a visit here wont cost you much. The cathedral is nice, but not spectacular.

Be aware of beggars outside. Amazing inside this large cathedral. Would highly recommend attending during a mass.
