The front door to the building is 18 meters tall and made entirely out of bronze. There is seating room for 5,000 people, but enough space for 20,000 inside if they want to stand. The interior space adds up to around 8,000 square meters, and the scale of the building is hard to grasp through images. Part of what makes this building so architecturally stunning are the 4 massive stained glass windows that stretch the entire vertical height of the building. Each one stretches 64 meters tall and were custom designed for the beautiful structure.
The basement of the cathedral houses the Sacred Art Museum, which is home to many religious and cultural works from the area. While this cathedral will likely be busy with tourists while the Olympics are taking place this fall, it should definitely make your list of places to go visit. The honeycomb structural style the building was built with gives it a unique feel, and it lands it on the list of most architecturally magnificent churches throughout the world.
