  • Beautiful Cathedral, next to the University. We could not go inside because they are restoring it. Recommended.

  • Very nice, well maintained exterior. In a very quiet and clean. Too bad it's closed when I went. I don't know if the mass is always served.

  • Impressive Cathedral from the outside, I didn't go inside, but just outside is worth a visit.
