    Beautiful Cathedral of Piura province. Much religiosity by the piurano people and their festivals are very beautiful.

    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.
