Old but beautiful building at the head of the square. Walked in as Mass was about to start- ordination of new priests- and it was a spiritual upliftment.

Located in the main square, this is a great place to visit if you are in the area. The Cathedral's construction started in 1805 and took 111 years to complete. If you have time, take a look inside its well worth the effort.

This big Cathedral is located of the main square, Comuneros. It is the main church where is held mass. You are welcome to go inside and see the simple look but still nice with its very nice columns.

From the outside this looks like just another Latin American cathedral, but take the time to look into the interior and appreciate the wonderful bi-coloured columns. Designed by the same guy who did the Bogota cathedral.
