Closed alas!
Apr 2021
The outside of the city's main cathedral is pretty, especially near dawn or dusk when the light intensifies the golden hue. But it has been closed since a 2017 earthquake, and meta fencing obstructs obstructs the view of the lower portions.

Beautiful

Sadly, due to Covid, much of the cathedral cannot be seen due to barriers and construction. The park in front of the church is also partially covered and not accessible. Will simply have to return.
Huh of activity in the square with vendors and food carts.

At the main plaza
Jan 2020
It's at the main plaza. Nothing unique about it. Same as all towns, they have a church and municipal buildings. Might be discouraged to enter, no one was checking when we were there, but there's really nothing to see.

Nice exterior but you can't get in.

The outside is very nice, and definitely worth the walk, but as stated in the title, we couldn't get inside...

You can't enter
Dec 2019 • Friends
The church itself can only be visited from the outside since tourists cannot enter the building. But in front of the church is a great nightmarket which offers amazing local handicraft including warm ponchos etc made locally. It is worth to hang out ther during the afternoon/night to see the market!!

Still curious about the interior
Jul 2019 • Friends
Although we tried to visit this sacred place, we only admired the exterior, as construction works are in progress and the church seems inaccessible at this moment (July 2019).

Sadly this building is still being restored after the earthquake in 2017. But it's a nice spot for photos.
