  • Excellent space public that it is private to meditate and contemplate. The cathedrals are also symbol of authority (the Bishop) but above all manifestation of living faith.

  • Beautiful, spacious and comfortable. Even so, I think that its facade it lacks to recover that touch "old architecture" that should have, perhaps by color that they have painted it... I think they should try to keep it as original as well as happens with the Cathedral of Lima.
