    If you would like to see the sights of the city of mine, this Cathedral is one of those places where you should go. It is located in two bus stops away from the central market. The ceiling of the temple is decorated with interesting frescoes. Near broken wonderful flower garden with beautiful roses and biblical statues, in which visitors can do in the summer, spring and autumn are good sat PHI.
