Overview

This imposing cathedral is the seat of the local archdiocese. Its exterior and interior demonstrate different architectural styles, having taken from 1770 until 1889 to complete. A pair of towers zealously guarding its belfries flanks the elaborate ornamental work of the facade. Inside there are paintings of the colonial period to the 19th century, as well as murals by Angel Zárraga depicting themes for the most part of the Franciscan evangelisation. It is worth visiting for its delicate beauty.
