Beautiful square; in front of the cathedral. Well maintained architecture. Also impressive size. If you want to get inside of the cathedral, don’t dress too revealing. On Sunday around noon, there’s a nice little show in the square (still have no clue what that is).
The cathedral is very nice from the outside and it has a nice square in front of it. We weren’t allowed to go inside, because we were wearing shorts. But even though we weren’t allowed to go inside, I would recommend visiting this beautiful building if you’re in the neighbourhood.
