While walking to the historical route "Ruta Historica", we came across to this cathedral. If you pay attention and concentrate you can feel the energy emanating from this place!

This area can be quite busy. We alert in terms of keeping your belongings safe . There is a number of spots to see in this vicinity. It is really a hit and miss. I love architecture so I enjoyed what I got to see.

Zone 1 or "Downtown" is not a safe place to go. There is a lot of delinquency, the people are very dirty and pee on the street, so it stinks. The buses are unregulated and there is a lot of black smoke coming from them....More

Historical heritage that touches your soul and opens up your chakras. The beauty resembles that of nature

It is definitely not the most beautiful church in the city, but it is in front of Palacio Nacional which is a must-see. So just pay a visit. Gets more interesting in Holy Week.
