The cathedral is very nice and in the city center situated.. The interior is all well maintained and I just recommend you to jump in for a few minutes if you are around. There is no entrance fee.

It's 2 bolivianos if im not mistake. And you can take very nice pictures from the tower. But, i should warn you: it's a long way until the top! I woke up with my legs hurting.

Beautiful cathedral right in the main plaza of santa cruz. Since you will probably get there anyway it's worth spending a few minuets sit in the plaza and look at it.

The Santa Cruz cathedral is understated from the outside, but once you step inside the wood and the metal work near the altar is wonderfully. In addition, the pinkish color really compliments the wood. You can pay a small price, approximately 10 bs or around a 1 dollar, to climb up the mirador and look out over the city. The... More

I always love visiting urban places, in other words: city tours are my favourite when I am on a business trip. Santa Cruz was not the exception: The cathedral is just awesome, the statues, the people, the architecture, just fabulous, tnahks Claudia Romero forthe wonderful Sunday with your family, I just loved it!

The cathedral occupies one side of the 24th September Plaza and is constructed of hand made brick. It is not as ornate as some of the Bolivian cathedrals but it is in daily use. The ceiling is a particularly fine construction of wood. It is possible to climb to the top of one of the towers and look over the... More

By Latin American standards, the Santa Cruz Cathedral is not particularly ornate or richly decorated. It is however a working cathedral. Any time of day you can find worshipers, short term visitors (to light that all important candle) and of course tourists. For the latter there is an unmissable visit to the cathedral towers where there are many interesting things... More

Its a beautiful cathedral. In the 1970's they plastered all over the brick trying to make modern and then spent years renovating it back to normal. Just spend some time admiring it and walking around the plaza. Its good to go to La Pascana and have an ice cream or some coffee on the higher floors to get a better... More

The Cathedral and the Plaza (square) across, made a very nice and quite environment. The Cathedral is a simple and beautiful one and from the tower (I went up to the observatory) there is an impressive view of the city and surroundings.

This church oozes tranquility, there is just something about it. The weather is very hot there, but the church is so cool inside. The bell tower is great too. Very peaceful inside this church, nice for a long or short prayer and very beautiful with lots of interesting features native to the area. A must visit for the spirituality of... More
