Founded in the 16th Century, its construction began in 1912, and over the years, numerous restoration programs have been implemented to retain its original character. Flanked by gigantic towers on either side, the majestic dome is inspired by the Cathedral of Florence's Renaissance minaret. The interiors boast intricate marble sculptures, stained glass panels and breathtaking architecture that's true to the Neo-Gothic school of design. The crypt houses tombs of archdiocese luminaries and the organ is one of the largest in the continent.
