One of the most beautiful church facades I have ever seen. The church was locked, unfortunately, such that we could not visit inside.

The church is grand from the outside. The square is full of small vendors selling all kinds of trinkets (which I call tourist tat, although some of it was very pretty). I'm sure my experience would have been better if I could have gone inside.

Historic and beautiful in every way, one cannot miss it when in San Cristobal. Many groups meet here, social events are happening and, of course, attending church/mass.

The square in front of the cathedral can get more than a little crowded with both real indigenous people and fake ones performing ritual dances. This is a really good place to use as a reference whenever you go out in the city. The street...More
