This Cathedral dominates the square in Santa Ana and if you're looking for something to do then visit. There's not a whole lot of other things to see in Santa Ana other than this. I walked around as much as I could to find other...More

The facade of the cathedral is pretty impressive for a small place like Santa Ana but inside its pretty basic but peaceful from the noise of the city.

The most entertaining part was watching all the kids running around the pigeons. And there was a lot of pigeons! Other than that, it’s an old church.

Stopped in Santa Ana to admire the historic buildings and have lunch. From the front you have no idea it isn't finished until you see it from the side! We were there on a Sunday during Mass so made our visit quick and respectful. People...More

Very nice cathedral in the cental square of Santa Ana. The stone work and beautiful white color on the outside are spectacular. The inside isn't amazing, but it is large and interesting to walk around. Definitely have a peak if you're in Santa Ana!

It looks impressive from the outside, especially at sunset, but inside was very dissapointing. But it definitly does a good job as a landmark...

This is an interesting building because of the mixture of architectural styles that don't quite clash. As a place of worship it was tranquil but not spiritual and I really don't like their "electric" alternative to lighting a candle in memory of loved ones.

Not the most impressive of Central American cathedrals but worth a quick visit. Free to enter. 100's of pigeons outside being fed watch out for poo!
