Striking statue outside St Mary's Cathedral. It looks absolutely amazing when it is sunny. Just adds to the square outside the church.

A huge column stands in an ample place near the cathedral and not far from food market. A sculpture of St. Mary stands on the top of a pillar. Monument is nice decoration but with average sculpture. It is well kept and freshly gilded.

Stunning statue situated outside the cathedral, both really impressive and lots of history attached to them

Bright and beautiful, this monument stands in the square opposite the church. It actually dominates the square brining a feeling of community as the people pass.

This statue is in the middle of a fountain in the square outside of the cathedral. It is nice to spend a few moments looking at it before visiting the other sites.

The statue of holy mary sitting in front of the cathedral is unmistakable. It sits on a tall column. Painted gold it shines when the sun is out. There is a water pond / fountain at the base of the monument.

A beautiful square just outside the church. The golden statue is impressive to look at. Surrounded by restaurants and shops, a nice place to walk around.

Permanently under construction, worth visiting this reconstructed cathedral which is being repaired since it was built due to the wrong stone used in building it.The chandeliers were taken from a Las Vegas casino which was discarding it anyway!

Cannot miss as in the main square. The statue is quite surreal, she cannot be missed and even if it's not your thing you can't help but look on at this and take some pictures. It's right opposite the famous cathedral

Certainly as monuments go, this one is quite striking. Located in front of the Cathedral of the Assumption, it's a popular rest spot for locals and tourists alike. Definitely worth having a look at.
