  • When in town the Cathedral is a must visit. We enjoyed reading of the history and the beautiful mosaics. The Architecture was interesting and the view over the town is worth seeing.  more »
  • Church is located at the top of a long driveway and high stairs. Nice view over the city if you go above. Also the Interior of the Church is worth a visit.

  • A stunning building set in beautiful grounds. The cathedral sits almost serenely on a hill projecting calm across the city.
  • Stunning work of architecture which sits in a prime location of the city.
  • Not bad. If you've got people in wheelchairs it'll be a struggle getting up to it. Nice inside if a bit small. Expected it to be bigger.
