  • This cathedral is impressive both from the outside and the inside. One can see the oriental influence in the decor, mosaics and atmosphere. It definitely is worth a visit while you walk around...

  • Gorgeous cathedral, especially on the outside, now that most renovations are done. Also worth a stroll inside, with a few interesting scenes, and some focus and memorabilia around Johnny Halliday. Some of the glass stained windows and the mosaics are really quite spectacular!
  • Impressive building - Roman Catholic cathedrale, completed in 1896. Beautiful, calm interior that you can enter and enjoy for free. Just pity, that besides one sign you cannot find any information in English for foreign tourists there.
