The city has several famous landmarks, this being one of them and also the most important church for local Catholic believers. If you ask a local to name the city symbol, they most likely name this church or the local theater.

We were able to attend part of a service. The interior of the cathedral is absolutely gorgeous. If you want a seat for the service, be sure to get there early as the church was full, with people even standing along the walls.
