This Catholic cathedral was finished in 1862, when the facade and the imposing Corinthian columns of the pronaos at the entrance were completed. The remains of the Great Liberator General José de San Martín rest in a guarded mausoleum, flanked by three statues representing Liberty, Commerce and Labour along with seals of the nation's neighboring countries. Its renaissance elements include the tiled dome, and the architectural floor plan of a Latin cross, comprised of three naves, divided by pilasters and interconnected chapels. Paintings and sculptures of European artists from the 18th Century and the baroque Altarpiece from Alto Peru are highlights.
