Climb up the bell tower to catch glimpse of the Cordillera foothills to the West, or go inside to see the a cracked counterpart to the USA's Liberty bell. Note the ceilings and unique brick architecture.

A traditional church, well kept, but nothing special.The best part of it is to go up the tower and have a panoramic view of the city.

This cathedral on the main plaza in downtown Santa Cruz is different for a couple of reasons. First, the entire facade, which looks pretty intricate from a distance, is made up of entirely simple, red bricks.
And, I was surprised to go in and see a mostly white and light interior with unusual (I thought) wood vaulted ceilings and only silver fixtures, no gold.
For a small fee, you can climb the bell tower for nice views of the plaza and of the city skyline.

Nice views for the bel tower! Only 5B to walk to the top and very nice views from there. When I was there it was quite windy, that was a bit scary, but worth it anyway!

On central square this red brick imposing cathedral is quite imposing... small entry fee is worth paying as the interior is splendid
