  • Front of the plaza is a magnificent monument religious dating back to the 19th century, built on the ruins of the previous building which was destroyed by an earthquake is of great historical value and religious for what it's worth worth your visit, and if held with FAITH the Lord and the Virgin of the miracle they will appreciate your prayer.

  • The Interior is worth a visit with all its colors. Try to go to mass. 7: 00. More: free guided tour Saturday afternoon that allowed us to enter the corners hidden and closed to the public

  • A lovely cathedral, but they've replaced the bell's with a Nokia ring tone. Strange!
