Take time to admire the dramatic Spanish Baroque facade, featuring a total of 24 statues of the apostles.

  • Great city to visit and have a great time. They have great sites and the hotel's they have are pretty good. Just choose the ones close to the Catedral.
  • Histórico e imponente en cuanto arquitectura. Muy bonita catedral.
  • Widely recommended, I love this Cathedral to be a temple as God commands, clean, tidy and breathe peace and harmony. From the tourist point of view, it is a compulsory stopping point.

  • Spectacular! I do not like that they hung posters across, it gives a bad appearance (even case of religious events)
