After seeing so many churches in the area, I was ready to sleepwalk through another. The dimensions of this place are simply stunning. We stayed for over two hours!

So many sections to this cathedral. Each one just as beautiful as the one before. If churches are your thing this is great one to visit.

Visited this Cathedral with a tour group..... nice to see.... nice to hear the history.... but not one of my favorites. You are not allowed to take photos (but then I think this is the same in most Catholic churches)

Another beautiful Cathedral in the town Plaza (square). S/ 25 to enter and no photos allowed due to the historic artwork. Every alter was solid silver, gold leaf or heaverly carved cedar. Magnificent.

No need to book in advance. You should be able to get in during the day unless there is a reason that the church is closed.
