I've lived here for years and I finally paid the couple bs. to climb up and see the view. I definitely was not wowed. The church building itself is beautiful and worth being photographed. It's situated on the main plaza of Santa Cruz, so that means the view is just the surrounding buildings . . . not my cup of... More

Beautiful church and surroundings that are worth visiting. This is an old church showing a lot of local tradition, building materials, etc. It is surrounded by nice places to hang out and rest time, in addition to being in the center of the city, surrounded by many retail stores.

Very Nice Church, Colonial style and too big. I visited also a museum very near to the Cathedral were I saw "Silla Presidencial" (Presidential Chair), a big scale chair, about two or three meters high

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
