No need to be of the faith to appreciate the significance of the church in the city's long history.
Situated in the city centre on a well patronized square that one can sit and watch Santiago pass you by.

If you appreciate the architecture and beauty of an old church then this is the place for you. For me, it was just magical (and I'm not catholic!). It is right up there with Notre Dame in France.

It is very fine to visit this cathedral located directly at the central place, Plaza des Armas. Outside and inside you recognize the Spanish roots and you get a feeling how big must have been the desire to build something like home so to feel at home again

The church is free to go into, so why not? It's in the main square of Santiago, and is well worth a look. It's quite impressive, and in very good condition considering the frequent earthquakes. Very rich decorations inside.
