Fodor's Review

The largest church in La Serena, this imposing cathedral faces the beautiful Plaza de Armas and is open to the public. French architect Jean de Herbage built this behemoth using stone from the Soldado mine in 1844 in the so-called "Serena style" of arches and columns, but it wasn't until the turn of the 20th century that the bell tower was added.
