Landmark building and a huge space. Worth a visit and it's quite peaceful. A little difficult to find parking at busy times.

I am not sure why there is a church next to the cathedral but is is a beautiful old style building. Lovely old wooden beams make this a must see. Easy if you are looking at teh cathedral.

A lovely little church, well cared for and a holy feel to it. Not far from the Holy Trinity, it's worth a visit and look for the architecture's peculiar signature !
