Other attractions include the screens of Our Lady of Ilse and High Altar designed by brothers Gegler. The seating capacity inside is 1240 seats and there is a choir on Sunday. The building is well lit at night. There is a tourist information center close by the cathedral.

  • In the city centre, is a place of unique architecture, painting beautiful and well attended. The interior is also beautiful.

  • It is a beautiful church, old, floored hallway. Defects: drowned out and with terrible sound system.

  • The Cathedral is very pretty inside but the acoustics of the Cathedral is not the best to attend Mass.
