The mosque situated at the city centre square is a very good example of how culture supercedes religious differences. This mosque now is a Catholic church while retaining the original decorations of the mosque.

A beautiful Mosque cum church. This place has its importance as it is the only church with the dome. One must go here and should know the history behind the mosque and the church and the dome.

The mosque is situated in the main square. You will find it very easy. Once upon a time there was a mosque but today that is center of Catholicism where they held Mass.
