Why locals recommend it
It’s the largest cathedral in the world! As soon as you walk in, you get the strange sensation of feeling physically tiny at the same time that your mind is expanding. Gazing around, calming stained-glass windows and sculptures surround you. Right outside, the Cathedral’s cross-shaped Biblical Garden is a lovely place to reflect under a shady tree. Look for the works and faces of notables like Keith Haring, George Nakashima, Shakespeare, and Einstein sculpted into the walls. This place is filled with many little secrets.

Be sure to go inside and stroll through the garden. ALSO! Check out the “Great Music in a Great Space” music series, if you like classical music even a little, it completely comes alive inside the halls of the cathedral.
