    Early 1900's Gothic-style Cathedral. To admire its beautiful stained-glass windows from the ceiling, paintings, altar! Architecture worthy of admiration for those religious people, you get an added value. It should be noted that in recent years was put in value by what is enjoyed outside as inside this building heritage. To recommend his visit as well as the chapel of Santa Secilia, the most ancient of the city

    Beautiful building in the center of the city, opposite the squares. I have visited the Cathedral thousands of times and always inside, the statues of the Saints, the height of its domes impresses me. Ideal place for rest and prayer.
