As you enter the cathedral, you'll feel overwhelmed by a sense of peace. Admire the intricate architecture and design of the interior, reflected in the marble walls and pillars. Marvel at the scenes depicted in stained glass as you inspect the cathedral, which also serves as a space for theatrical events and concerts.
