What a beautiful cathedral. When we visited, the priest was there getting ready for an afternoon wedding. One could tell how proud he was of this church.

Magnificent place of Catholic tradition. The wall behind the alter was covered as if it was being painted or repaired. Windows, statues, etc are well worth a 30 minute stop. Check the Mass schedule so you either attend mass or visit outside these times. Plenty...More

This is a very pretty cathedral. Basilica style architecture. Charming size. Attractive. Some nice stained. I visited during the day and the lights on the altar were off. Then someone turned them on and the place looked remarkably better. A nice quiet place to meditate.
