“Beautiful”

I am always in awe at the beauty of the old cathedrals, and this one will not disappoint you. It is in much better condition than some I have seen. The craftsmanship is simply amazing!

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

Very common yet exquiste beauty. The ceiling as in a number of churches is to be admired. It is always amazing to me the artistry and architecture which went into the design and building of these magnificant buildings.

“A real atmospheric Church experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

We attended a twelve o clock service which lasted 30 minutes and it helped us to take in the history of this wonderful church in the heart of the city. It was really moving and one felt uplifted when walking out into the sunshine. Well worth a visit

“Nice place for an afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

There is a pretty big collection on religious items, very well captioned in both Spanish and English! Also a large series of south american painting depicting the life of Saint Francis. Bonus option- take a rest in the courtyard garden with 2 lovely and very active peacocks.
