The cathedral is an amazing construction, a fine neoclassical style example, and since it has a privileged location right on the center of town, on an elevated position and facing a beautiful square, is definitely a must see.

We visited the cathedral during the day and during the night, and passed by it almost everyday.

It?s really magnificent in its simplicity, yet you feel greatness just by looking at it. According to the time of day, the light and silhouette of the building changes, and it?s always a new feeling every time that you look at it.

Address: Unioninkatu 29
Directions: Go on Aleksanderinkatu to the senate square direction. 10 min. walking.
