We were lucky enough to be able to see a wedding and attend the mass. Stunning everywhere you looked! Be sure to walk around (when there is not a mass) and enjoy the sculptures and stations.

Currently in the process of restoring the exterior of this cathedral to its former glory, (hundreds of years of dirt and grime take its toll). One tower is complete, the matching tower is still grey and dirty. Absolutely awestruck by the detail of the exterior and interior. If you don't visit the old city in Plaza de la Almas, and... More

The city´s Cathedral is a marvelous sample of the baroque style. Located at the corner in front of the Plaza de Armas. At its facade, you can appreciate the beautiful marble sculptures of the twelve Apostles. The two lateral towers that complement the whole front of the church, give an exquisite site as you enter. At the interior there is... More

I loved this Cathedral! I had no expectations whatsoever, , but it is one of my favourites. It has very high ceilings painted in software blue inside with angels and saints. Outside it has two different coloured towers as they were made at different times with different materials.
