The cathedral itself looks good but the surrounding gate around the compound is filthy, and there are pickpockets all over the area. You wouldn't believe me, but i witnessed a "lady" pull down her pants, and for lack of a better term... poop on the sidewalk right next to one of the gates 🤮💩😷 There is garbage all around the place and the amount of homeless beggers is saddening being that it looks like the cathedral has money.
