Catedral Vieja

Catedral Vieja Review

Also called El Sagrario, this lovely church, the "Old Cathedral," was begun in 1557, the year the city was founded, and served as the headquarters of its archdiocese until a new cathedral on the opposite side of the park was completed in the 1960s. The whitewashed outside gleams after a complete restoration; the inside serves as a museum of religious art.
