Amazing Windows. Let in so much light. Even though we aren't Christian, the cathedral was a great stop. Trying to imagine building it by hand hundreds of years ago. . . Magnificent. Get a pizza across the street at Harry Os

Establishe in 1788 is the oldest in NE. Beautiful setting, ceilings, doors and columns. Gorgeous landscape and view. Enter through the missericordy door.

Nice Cathedral which is partly being renovated at present. There is no charge for entry which is a bonus. Masses at various times of the day.

Wonderful Mass in Spanish. Veneration of the heart of St. Padre Pio. Cathedral will be renovated in the near future.
