  • Beautiful externally church, inside modestly, but aesthetically pleasing. There's an organ inside. I visited the organ concert, I liked it very much. Church acting. You can leave a donation at the exit.

  • This cathedral does not amaze splendor and riches, it falls in love with cosiness, calmness, beautiful gentle shades, organ music and it is possible to tell divine presence. View from the main square, from where you should get away from the noise of the crowds and immerse yourself in the coolness of the cathedral.
