  • I know that it takes for all tastes, but personally I do not understand how we could cover the façade of a monument in this way...

  • Huge Cathedral, from outside a large grey building. Inside enormously large. The modern façade at the rear is Striking. This has only been added in 1999 and consists of a 28 mm thick sheet of marble with a stained window. As The sun shines, the marble leaves the sunlight and gives in a nice e atmosphere.

  • Neo-Gothic Cathedral of the nineteenth century, it is not a masterpiece of this particular style, neither on the outside nor inside. It has all the coldest, the stiffness of the lines without the momentum that one feels in the Gothic churches.

  • To me this cathedral looks weird, being made of two different parts. The exterior looks very modern while the interior is a bit more like you would expect from a cathedral, with very few touches. I'm not saying they're not nice, i just think that they're both more beautiful individually than together. Interesting place nonetheless!
  • Weird cathedral than seems like a Frankenstein of a few different eras... I'm a fan of modern interventions in old buildings, and there are good examples of church renovations that are a lot more interesting and well executed. That main door facade looks completely out of place and not exactly integrated with the original building...
  • Very strange and impressive kathedral. It is build in several stages. It has a modern front and inside you see different architecture. In the back it is build in a traditional style. Via the side of the building there is an elevator to get in with a wheelchair or whatever ♿️
  • Beautiful church. Full of energy and history. I go there sometimes just to enjoy those vibrations. It's something to see !
  • Mix of classical and modern, but the modern part does not match. Looks like it's under construction
