  • We found it interesting since we have been told that the first priests are buried in the cathedral. There are some pictures that were painted by a famous local artist.  more »
  • It goes according to the plaza de armas, it is small, basic infrastructure, picturesque to say somehow, as part of the route of the city is well.

  • You don't have a great architecture, is good for the scale of the city, is of the flourishing period of Iquitos
