Fodor's 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.
