This cathedral is absolutely beautiful from the outside. I walked around and took pictures for 15 minutes. Sadly, it was closed for renovations, but I'm sure I would have given five starts if I was able to go in.

Only a local, private tour guide would have brought us here. Olive knew that we would enjoy this stop to pray at beautiful Cathedral of Immaculate Conception. It was especially meaningful during this Year of Mercy.
