    This well-preserved, occupies a corner in front of the main square. It was his left side there is a religious and historical Museum little frequented and if it is worth to visit. The building of the Cathedral is impressive, there is an antique clock that works perfectly in one of its dome.

    I especially recommend to those who are accustomed to European cathedrals to appreciate the characteristics of each one.

    Like all the cathedrals of the country it has its charm. But it is neglected, lacking maintenance. Enter in the path of the Center.
