The Gothic style Cathedral is the main attraction of the city. It would be really hard to miss it because it's huge.

It was built from volcanic rock, just like all the other old buildings in the city, so it is totally black. If you look from a distance, together with the smaller white houses, it looks a little scary actually.

The inner part of the Cathedral is also made of the same black rock, I have never seen such a church before. It is very impressive and beautiful, but again, a little weird that everything is black.

I think this is something you definitely shouldn't miss if you are in the area. Also take some photos, you won't regret it.

Address:
