  • The interior ornamentation are beautiful if somewhat ornate. It is a place of serenity and peace and a good place to ponder and relax. 
  • To tell the truth, the exterior to the interior of this Church of colonial is nicer. The walls grey stone and the Bell Tower give an attractive appearance, although internally does not have much grace. Anyway, is part of the beautiful Plaza de Armas where power civil and religious past converged.

  • Meeting point of the stroke inherited most of the formation of our cities, is to find the civic road adjacent to our main square. The Cathedral, works as an embers of the past where you can get you a moment of modern and enjoy its architecture, a personal moment, as it also works for civic and orchestral performances.
