Stunning landmark that lifts the soul upward to heaven. Beautiful interior, soaring dome, and unique alter area. Lovely stained glass create a lovely worship space and secularly impressive building.

This was a beautiful cathedral to visit. We did not take the tour however, we just walked the interior. Beautiful stained glass and architecture. Nice place to visit with the family.
