In 1613 Jesuits decided to build here a church but they shouldn't know that one day it will become Cathedral to the Blessed Virgin and all people will call it "Notre Dame". It is built in late Gothis style mixed with rennaisance. Especially the vitrages and towers are great. However, it was renovated becaue on of the tower was burnt some tens of years. In 18th CT century there was adopted the picture of the Lady Comforter of the Afflicted who made miracles and she was the patron saint of the city and the country. And finally in 19th CT Pope Pius XI dedicated the cathedral to Virgin Mary. Later there was a little enlargement and nowadays there are several places to see inside such as the grave of duke, cathedral itself and also downstairs.
