Catedral de Córdoba Review

Córdoban poet Luís Roberto Altamira called the Catedral de Córdoba, on the west side of Plaza San Martín, a "stone flower in the heart of the homeland." Construction began in 1577, though it wasn't until 1784 that the church was completed—which explains its disparate styles. Note the angelic musicians on the baroque front towers. They were sculpted by indigenous peoples in 1776, and they bear the faces of their sculptors.
