The Altar of Forgiveness is located at the front of the central nave. It is the first holy relic to greet visitors upon entering the cathedral. The simple beauty in the wood pews was more pleasing to me than the ornately decorated altar. Although, I was impressed by the intricacy of the design created by the artisans.
I do like the idea of seeking forgiveness as soon as one enters the Catedral. It puts one in a good frame of mind when entering holy ground.
