  • Definite must see. Moderate hike from the docks but worth the effort. Most of the shops and boutiques along the way offer a variety of gifts and food items
  • The cathedral is beautiful but the outside is under restoration construction so it's difficult to walk around it plus you can't get good photos without having construction vehicles in the pictures. The interior is quite beautiful though.
