  High Altar
by filipdebont

The building began in 1657, and they needed 49 years to finish it. It was the main chapel of the Cathedral, but now it is a separate church.

As most churches the decorations are beautiful and very rich. The High Altar was very beautiful.

Show some respect for the local people in the church, if you want to make some pictures while using your flash.
