The church has a rich history. Further up the road there is a monastery and a convent. The alter is gold.

Took a tour here and I didn't realized how beautiful it was. They allow non-flash photography. It is air-conditioned and a great stop while touring the area..

Hello, there was some construction going on around there but it didn't affect the cathedral. We went on August so it may be an issue now. Enjoy your trip.
