I wonder how the renovations to the cathedral are going. Most of the work needed is around the dome as you can see the stripping of paint. There is also some restorative work needed on its interior where after Vactican II, ceiling murals were blanked out - representing the paring down of the Catholic Church. A tad too over zealous, as this is the priority in the preservation of this architectural icon.
