The cathedral of John the Baptist was breathtaking. There are no other words to describe such a beautiful place inside and out.

This is a beautiful church. Lots of history attached. Decorated for Christmas and I guess the wreaths were real. The aroma filled the air.

Only street parking is available but usually there are places available. The cathedral also is a designated stop on the bus and trolley tours, on/off all day.
