So complete renovation was completed only in 1845. And in 1997, was built is still a cellar in the basement.

      At present, the Cathedral is a neo-classical building, with its inherent straight lines, surfaces and easy processing of marble and gilding. Able to accommodate up to a thousand people, it retains the festive atmosphere greatness. In addition to such large-scale traditional cathedrals body inside you can see a huge layout of the ship, which hangs under the arches.
