  • Being that La Serena does not have too many places to visit, this is a beautiful place that will not take more than 15 minutes to go through.

  • The Cathedral of La Serena is one of the most beautiful I've seen. Built in stone, giving it a truly stunning image. Its construction was started in the year 1844, consagrandose 12 years later, according to what he said a memorial sign in the same building. The interior is as majestic as the outside, I'm not an expert on music, but has a huge and beautiful pipe organ (I think it works with air, but really not is). Very close to the altar is the gate that leads to the tombs of the bishops. The door is on the ground. A very beautiful place worth a visit, especially if you like religious art.

  • Very very old stone Cathedral. Mass is celebrated daily, and of course there are mass Sundays at 12 pm. The side runs the Archbishopric.
