We visited the Catedral on a sunny afternoon so there were a lot of people inside as well as in the plaza in front of it so it was nice and full of life. I also liked that it had it's reflection on the pavement in front.

This old cathedral is ugly and dreary and, in my opinion, a difficult place in which concentrate on one's prayers. Perhaps some individuals are inspired by such atmosphere...

The jesuit church, with the guided tour is more interesting. If you are not yet bored with spanish colonial religious stuff, you will be pleased.

Nice church in front of the main plaza, beautiful architecture and ambiance. Not to miss, and good place to catch mass.

An impressive architectural Cathedral. Wonderful interior. In the heart of the central shopping district. On a great piazza. Liked it better than the Cappuchino.

The Cathedral is very impressive but there was a tent set up right in front of it which made photographs difficult with a very limited perspective. Hopefully the tent was temporary as the Cathedral was very beautiful.

This church took 200 years to complete. If you are a Catholic this is a holy and spiritual place to come and pray and it it breath taking.

Not only is it an iconic religious building, but the structure stands as a true example of colonial architecture. When we started the tour, we see the many styles that have been established as a true gem of the country.

Right on the main square Plaza San Martin, this cathedral with a lavish interior has a particularly interesting facade, which "shines" at night - great for photos.

Beautiful church and so colourful inside. It's free and doesn't take long to visit. Guided tours leave hourly I think but not sure if they are in English.
