  • The Cathedral of La Serena, is located in front of the plaza de armas, a couple of blocks from the Center. Noah s a lovely Church and there are many beggars at the entrance. It is very dark and it is difficult to take some photos

  • It is located in the Plaza of arms of La Serena. In its interior, which is dominated by the marble and clear tones, presents three vaults, adorned with paintings that were never finished and still empty spaces can be seen. Beautiful altar.

Where to stay in La Serena

La Serena provides a varied selection of sleeping options, with the area between the main bus station and the town center featuring at least one hostel on every street. Despite this abundance of lodgings, many hotels book up fast at the height of the tourist season (summer: January-February), and some refuse visitors on single-night stays. If you're looking for the ultimate in space and comfort, consider renting a furnished apartment on the coastline.
