  • First of all went on a Friday and it opens at 11. Cost about 6 each. Very nic, takes about an hour to visit. All of these churches have their unique features. This one uses a LOT of color.

  • Plan to spend 30 to 45 minutes visiting this gorgeous cathedral. The building sits near a wall several hundred years old. Super cool.

  • I share my experience by saying I was in awe and sadden, its truly a personal experience.
  • Plenty of space, but a bit drafty. Could've been great but a major lack of air conditioning held it back from being what it could
