Still in process of restoration. The inside is a quiet escape. You can sit and listen as worshippers sing their prayers. This view of city is really nice.

You don’t have any interesting colonial style buildings here. Only one place which you can visit is that Basilica but watch out for your wallet cause there are plenty of thiefs around that place especially in the evening. The roof is nice but if you...More

OK. Its an impressive building in the grand scheme of things and has history for sure but its just a big white building. You can access the roof for a small fee and there are fair views from the top. Its quite cheap and probably...More

Pretty but surprisingly plain interior. Cool inside on a hot day. A short climb of 77 steps through a narrow channel takes you to the top for a nice view of the city.

While the ticket purchasing process is quite obnoxious, the views more than make up for it. I recommend going on the roof and really enjoying all that the Cathedral has to offer.

NOTE: pay the few cordobas to have access to the "white" roof, it's well worth the cost and few steps up.

I had a great time visiting this basilica. It is right in the middle of the main square in the city with lots to do around it. The basilica itself was the first old cathedral I have visited and made an enormous impression on me....More

You have to take of your shoes so as not to make marks on the white roof or damage the ballustrades.
