  • The Cathedral of Santa Maria is located in the Plaza de Armas of Trujillo, stands out for its beauty outside and inside, the detail of the ceiling painting is majestic. It breathes great peace and tranquility. If you go at night you can see outside the Church illuminated that gives a special touch. If you are in the square don't miss the Cathedral.

  • Simple but nice colors and proportions, the Cathedral of Trujillo is one of the first notable buildings protruding through the Plaza de Armas. Nighttime lighting gives a more imposing aura, although inside you should see to complete the experience.
