Usual church with lots of gold. Look for the float which comes out occasionally for festivals. Now with tyres and driven, not carrid. Amused me
You can't miss popping into here. The interior is reminiscent of most other Spanish colonial cathedrals but is worth a gander.

Wow - this is amazing. I have seen a number of churches / cathedrals and this is definitely one of the best. The history!! - try to get a guide to go through with, it gives you a better understanding for sure.

Although it is not cheap, the cathedral is a must to visit, great paintings, the architecture, the main front made of gold... there is an access to the other two churches which form part of the cathedral. Awesome for people loving art.
