The cathedral la major is beautiful inside and out. It has a familiar architecture to the Duomo in Florence, Italy. Entrance inside is free. I also love the mosaic tiles on the floor of the building. You should make a quick stop if you are in the area.
A must go place for those interested in history and the seamen way of life, fears and thoughts, not just the religious side of it. Amazing views of the city and coastal landscapes.
