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. The lower part is light classical inspiration, while the top is clearly marked by the Baroque style. The interior, decorated... More

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.

The constuction started in 1580 and it was inaugurated in 1709. It is located in the city center and it is one of my favourite buildings in the city only two years ago there was a big campaing to re-paint it entirely. The result: magnificent! when you look at it you really see a piece of art!

Fantastic and very well preserved. Suggest take a guided visit in the office in Calle Obispo Trejo next to the church; it is so much more interesting

Beautiful on the outside and on the inside. In the square in front, don't miss the white stone that draws the basic outline of the Cathedral and the next door building on the ground, outlining the shape, doors and windows. Interesting!

The cathedral is beautiful, but the Jesuit church a few blocks away has more history and maintains its original architecture.

Everything that can be carved is carved; any column that can plausibly be made twiddly has been made twiddly; everything that can be gilded is gilded; the inside of every dome is painted, every side-chapel has its polychrome wooden saint or Jesus - look for the good shepherd with his sheep.

The jesuits built this cathedral over a period of many years. It is located in a central square and there is an interesting outline in front in marble showing the outline of the building. The tour is do it yourself and all of the descriptions are in Spanish, but the partial restoration is well done and the memorials that are... More
