    It is located in the Centre of the city. It highlights its good state of preservation. It is worth taking a time to visit the interior, and appreciate its altar, its domes and his pulpit. Not very light, there is an image of Saint just judge.

    Seems more like an imitation botched the Cathedral. Only surveying the Baroque pulpit, however similar to that of the Cathedral.
