  • At first I thought that it would be like all other cathedrals and have an old discolored yellow build that makes it look nice and ancient. But when approached the yard I saw that the whole complex has a really nice medieval vibe to it with cobblestone steps and a bell tower. The cathedral itself is a gorgeous white stone that looks like it's under maintenance to add even more sections to this beautiful carved stone that already holds more history than American history books.
  • The view is amazing, you can see the hills and the mountains and enjoy the fresh air... and everything is for free, no fees no tickets... I will recommend to any tourist to come here and visit this place! I am in love and next time I will come again!
