This Early Byzantine-styled Catholic Cathedral, designed by Victorian architect John Francis Bentley, is set off the main road across a small piazza. A fine marble interior and many beautiful mosaics in a resplendent fusion of blue hues top the impressive high altar, behind which the choir sits. The dramatically suspended, huge painted crucifix is well worth visiting. Sung High Mass is a majestic experience with incense and a whole legion of altar servers. The Bell Tower is an excellent vantage point from which to view the city and visitors can access it via lift everyday.
