Nice gothic revival building. The interior is fairly restrained, yet presents a 19th century venue to interact with your spirituality.

We walked to the Centro district of San Sebastian, and found it dominated by this huge, beautiful, single tower cathedral. We walked through it and around it. Amazing!

Really stands out from so many different angles as the spire is huge and very detailed, probably less impressivee inside but still interesting even with the workmen inside
