Get out of the tour bus (I saw 2 stop for the sum total of 15 minutes; most folks used the grounds as a place to throw their trash.) If you take the time to walk up the hill you get not only a great...More

The fact the the cathedral is unfinished is the curiosity - most churches in this state elsewhere were first finished then destroyed somehow. This one never made is due to internecine warfare among parishioners; hurricanes and $$ earmarked for 'this', going to 'that'. Because it...More
