  • It is a place worth visiting with paintings, sculptures and stained glass windows that make it a religious Museum, is located in the Centre of the city, I do not like that you one side of the Cathedral are located informal traders, what might be missing a good view to photograph the place and should close the transit vehicle that you spent in front of the façade so that the Cathedral is the protagonist of the place deserves it
