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 always important to know the cathedrals of cities one visits you has a little more than the story of that city. The Church is a rather modern, but is very nice.
