  • The church is nice and build in the classic style used for Cathedral in South America. It has no speciel features a quirky details, but it worth a short visit is passing by. Don't spend any time on go...  more »
  • We visited the Cathedral with my girls. We were greeted kindly. Stone construction is already imposing yet cozy. YOU MUST KNOW IT. Just was the schedule of mass so we stayed. It presided over the Bishop. It was very simple. We get to the heart share with brothers from other countries.
