  • It is worth visiting it see how beautiful that is... The unco bad is that you have visiting hours and not at all times you can see it. The lighting at night is beautiful

  • Very nice church to visit. Please keep in my that people are actually worshipping. Architecture is outstanding..  more »
  • seems only a very large church, but you're closer looks makes much more imposing, narrates the legend that the bells in the Tower maria was uploaded by los angeles and hence the name of the city. inside it is beautiful despite its low light

  • Big, old, regal, majestic, awe-inspiring, even for someone like me who is not religious in the least. Awesome.
  • Very nice place to visit while your in the area. But they will not allow you to take pictures.
  • Really big Cathedral, really cute inside. You can access to a small part next to it which is nice too. One this will be better if they were encline to renovate it outside because it's really dirty.
  • The Most Beautiful Cathedral I have ever Seen. It has the Most Magnificent Octogonal Alter. Sunday Mass began with Awesome Gran Organs. Spectacular to Watch the Large Bells in Towers being rung. Such a Wonderful Experience.
  • Magnificent UNESCO heritage
