Loved the museum inside the Cathedral and the tower from where you can see almost the entire city. The museum has a lot of pieces from the colonization period and so forth. You have to visit this hidden treasure!

One of the best Chiquitano Style Cathedrals in South America. Well kept, but needs to have more information about its history. The day we went, we could not find any literature, although we were assured there are books and pamphlets about it.

This is a wonderful site if you are at the plaza in Santa Cruz. However you must remember that you will be approached by vendors who know you are tourist and locals in great poverty. the architecture and the culture are worth the hassle.

Nice cathedral in the center of Santa Cruz . Infront you have the place September 24th. Nice trees, lots of benches , good place to relax from the stress you maybe have had. Lots and lots of people sitting there and have their fun. Around the church you'll see lots of restaurants and bars. Next to , you'll see cafe... More

The artistic icons, saints, & many people praying humbly inside the cathedral + the brick walls & majestic size of this church in the middle of a plaza filled up with palm trees.

I like its clock and its really neat to climb the tower you can see so much of the city from there, the walk up can wear one out but the view makes it all worth it

A pretty place. You are allowed to go in anytime, even though it is in use. Outside there are many local women with young children and baby's begging, so be prepared. Some street entertainment outside, which gave you a feel for the place.
