The structure has a rich history. There is a statue of the last Pope recently added in front to commemorate his visit. The art on the ceiling is wonderful.

We went to the Cathedral and were met at the door by a church official who told us that Mass was currently being said. Being practicing Catholics, we entered to participate. The interior of the Cathedral is very ornate and impressing. I recommend that anyone...More
