Construction began in 1833 and it was completed by 1860. Modelled after the Pantheon in Rome, it is the 3rd largest unsupported dome in the world behind St. Peter`s in Rome and St. Paul`s in London. However, the most interesting part of its existence is something that happened on April 9th, 1942 when a German bomb was dropped on it and pierced the dome with parishioners in attendance. It did not explore. According to the locals, it was a miracle!
