  • Neo-Gothic construction started in 1892 and studied, although it has had subsequent parts, in 1905. While certain materials have an acceptable quality, the result set leaves much to be desired. It is a good scope for music concerts, particularly of sacred music, although it has been frequently used for other genres, always within the sacred or classical music.
