Structure and statuary are truly awesome! (Let people come here to understand what that word actually means!) We went on a Sunday and were able to attend services. They permitted people to attend services (picture taking prohibited) while other tourists were directed to the halls...More

Very nice cathedral. Surrounding it are very nice stores with cheaper souvenirs. Food stalls or restaurants are near the cathedral and affordable.

Stunning to see and full of history. It doesn't take long to walk through and our line to get in wasn't long. The area around is a fun place to eat and walk through.
