Neoclassical Catholic temple built between 1766 and 1872 on the remains of the old Romanesque church and designed by the architect Julián Sánchez Bort. The plan of the temple is a Greek cross, organized around a central dome supported by Ionic pillars with naves covered by cylindrical vaults, and with its four corners with chapels covered by vaults. The main façade is made up of two superimposed bodies, with two towers on both sides. By bull of Juan XXIII in 1959 it reached the category of co-cathedral of the Mondoñedo-Ferrol diocese

Impressive work of architecture, it is a temple with beautiful carvings and reflects a beautiful splendor, it is very bright and at the same time very solemn, frankly charming from the artistic point of view, and from the spiritual point of view it is brand new, to enter it, It already gives a feeling of peace and security at the same time, in short, for those who visit the city it is a highly recommended point and cannot be overlooked.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
