  • Amazing cathedral with Gothic style architecture. The building is clearly visible in this small town with few tall buildings. The twin towers looked massive from a distance, and even more imposing up close. Inside is richly decorated. There are many religious artifacts, paintings, sculptures, and relics. Definitely worth visiting if you are in the area. There are also many street vendors selling great foods outside. This entire area is very pedestrian friendly.
  • This church has so many fantastic details! Easily one of our favorite churches. There were so many incredible statues, paintings, and carvings. You genuinely have to see it for yourself, photos simply don't do it justice. You can walk around the entire exterior of the prayer area and if you blink you may miss something! Definitely stop here, you won't be disappointed
