What I would say for this attraction is that should be combined with the Mercado Central tour. Then it would pay the visit. To go there just for the cathedral, then it could be disappointing, once there is nothing else in the surroundings.

This is the most unimpressive Cathedral I've ever seen. It's quite large and has some stained glass but otherwise is very plain. The ceiling was being repaired while we were there, it looked to be falling down in places. I tried to light an "electric"...More
