Admire Catedral de Tumbes, a modern church in the heart of Tumbes built on the site of an old colonial building, which stands out as the city's tallest building. The cathedral was originally built in the 17th century in Baroque style, before being rebuilt in 1985. Head inside to see the intricately carved Baroque altar. Once inside, pay special attention to the ornate stained glass panels, which portray scenes from the life of Jesus Christ.

  • It is one of the most colorful and beautiful cathedrals I've seen in Peru. It is in the Plaza de Armas, against shell. You can go on their own and is the starting point for a series of colorful monuments that exist in the surrounding area. Highly recommended.
