  • Its not the most amazing and stunning cathedral I've ever seen, but its really cute and quaint. The architectural design is very simple, and the dominant yellow color makes it stick out!  more »
  • Seems small for a cathedral. Very well kept building for it's age. I think it was built in the late 1800's. Beautiful stained glass.  more »
