  • Beautiful cathedral inside and outside. The square around it is also really beautiful
  • An amazing building with some amazingly detailed art pieces! It's the place surrounded with a lot of bars and restaurants. It's nearby city center, with multiple stores near it! Don't miss to see the clock tower at 12:00(Afternoon). It's an amazing sight to see all the sculptures inside it move accordingly. Have fun!✌
