  • You see this from anywhere in Banos. I only went inside once and that was when an orchestra was playing some famous film songs like Mission Impossible etc. I don't know if that is common but it's pretty cool.
  • You can see this gorgeous cathedral from anywhere in Banos, its a very good reference point for meeting people.
