You should have warned us that the cathedral was undergoing MAJOR renovations. All debit/art was removed or covered in plastic. All seeing was removed and blocked off for cranes//lifts. Extremely poor air quality from machinery etc. We tried to at least enjoy the ceilings and stained glass and someone was pushing us away for safety because workers were above us on scaffolding and they were worried something may fall on us. We spent $50 for 5 people and got Less than 10 minutes to see exposed walls construction machinery.
