  • It is a magnificent cathedral. Inside it has a lot of history and art come together in one great work! Is something exceptional! Inside there are several tapestries that express the magnificence of the entire Cathedral! The aisles are filled with artworks, tapestries in bas-reliefs and the two aisles are the two huge organs that are truly a sight! Itself is a beautiful watch! Those who appreciate the art will appreciate this Cathedral!

  • The Cathedral is very nice, cleanliness is even too much. I pointed out to my boys the frog embossed on the side door to the North, via Pretoria.

  • Surprisingly beautiful inside. Ceilings are painted a bright sky blue with gold stars. At the moment there is a special tapestry exhibit from 1600s. Look for marker in floor for Sr Volta the Italian electrical scientist from Como for whom voltage is named.
