  • Big, old, regal, majestic, awe-inspiring, even for someone like me who is not religious in the least. Awesome.
  • Very nice place to visit while your in the area. But they will not allow you to take pictures.
  • Really big Cathedral, really cute inside. You can access to a small part next to it which is nice too. One this will be better if they were encline to renovate it outside because it's really dirty.
  • The Most Beautiful Cathedral I have ever Seen. It has the Most Magnificent Octogonal Alter. Sunday Mass began with Awesome Gran Organs. Spectacular to Watch the Large Bells in Towers being rung. Such a Wonderful Experience.
  • Magnificent UNESCO heritage
