was twice partially destroyed by earthquakes and rebuilt. Inside it there is a little museum, that you can only visit with a guide, with huge gold pieces, used only in important Christian festivities and a wonderful organ, fully functioning. You can also climb to the top of the Basílica to get a 360 degree view of the city, including the 3 volcanoes and the bell tower.

Es una catedral muy bonita, interesante por su ingreso lateral, aunque cobran entrada para ingresar.

Una joya arquitectónica en medio de la plaza.
Construida completamente en síllar, que es una piedra volcánica, su estilo es neo renacentista.
Una arquitectura que no te dejará indiferente, tanto de día como de noche, tiene una belleza especial.
