Construction began in 1921 and took some 91 years to complete--just in time for a visit from Pope Benedict XVI. Displaying a richly decorative Gothic Revival aesthetic, the large cathedral dominates the surrounding area, with the plaza at its front serving as a popular meeting place for locals and visitors. The interior features an atmospheric crypt with seven catacombs, and an impressive marble altar.

  • It is worth to linger on details for lovers of art and especially the Gothic. Inside clear gives a feeling of spaciousness not very common in the original gothic and takes more lives by the colorful stained glass windows, some with picturesque rather than majestic scenes. The gates are typical of art Gothic unlike external colors, which I think remove you Majesty to this monumental work. Worth entering the crypts and learn to see the spectacle of lights on designated evenings.
