This is a beautiful church, churches seem Most the same all over the world but I would still suggest visiting for a short time. It's nice for photos or to sit inside for a moment if you are religious yourself.

Close to the main square, should be included in your visit! Beautiful view to the lake, nice gardens, architecture, windows/vitraux.

We could not see inside this church. We could only take some pictures outside. It is very big and beautiful. However, there was no sign to indicate us his name. For us it was just an excellent reference point.

It's near downtown, and even though it only takes an hour to visit, it offers a great array of vitreaux on its windows, and a via cruxis that shows not only events from the life of Jesus, but also about the arrival of the Europeans in America, of World Wars, etc. Interesting

Stop by if you're in town! By no means is this a long visit, but it's a nice little pit stop as you're walking through the town or by the coast. It's very beautiful inside and it's nice and quiet, as churches are. Don't make a special visit, but since you're most likely going to walking through the center, it's... More

Very minimal and sober style, without baroque decorations. We were therefor the... More

mix with very modern is not done well . The decorations for Christmas were very cheap and sparse. There is no art to speak of .

The Cathedral seats on one of the main roads by the lake. Regardless of being built during WWII is still shows some unfinished touches in the interior. Nonetheless it is quite beautiful with its decorations and large glass doors. It's a good photo op with the lake as a background. Interestingly enough, TripAdvisor has another page for this church under:... More

The building is nice with rock walls, it has a majestic feeling to it and unique beauty. It very much is a mountain church.

This is a relatively new church, with no particularly distinctive architecture or art (there are some interesting stained glass windows showing native people slaughtering Christian missionaries!). But it seemed to me harmonious, and oddly but movingly spiritual. Well worth a visit.
