Meditative spot, gorgeous architecture, and a nice place to have a rest for a few min until you head out to your next tourist activity.

It's hard to walk into this cathedral and not be impressed. The amount of detail and all the man hours that must have gone into building this place is mind boggling. You don't have to be religious to get a sense of awe and reverence....More

No tickets needed. I imagine that yes, anyone can attend. It was a very welcome feel to the church. There were some security people, but hundreds of.people wandering around the church while tons of other people attended mass.
