Not your ordinary church tour! Only 5 dollars admission. Beautiful, clean and gold everywhere! Construction began in the 1,500's. You can leave your camera in your bag. No photos allowed. But they don't sell pictures of the cathedral. Doesn't make sense.

I'm not particularly keen on visiting churches or monasteries but I did enjoy visiting this one. Everything is gold platted, there are some beautiful paintings and statues inside and there was an exhibition of bells when we were there. Price for foreigners $5 per person.

This a very good example of barroque art strongly mixed with muslim art, a very unlikely (unique?) cohabitation. The church is very rich and the visit is a must.

The interior of this church is amazing! Gold covered chapels, exterior and interior lighting that cast an incredible rainbow of rose color over the beautiful ceilings, and an organ that was being beautifully exercised when we entered. Well worth a visit ... take some time to go through to the courtyard where an exhibition of the history of the Jesuits... More

Baroque style church covered with gold, on the roof, walls, columns just about everywhere. Interesting to see but my personal taste found it not as appealing as the more traditional type of older church's with amazing artworks and stained glass. Worth a visit due to its uniqueness however and historical value.

This is one of the oldest churches in the old town, renovated and restored after a fire took place many years ago, it has been restored to it´s original glory and even better. Incredible architecture and gold leave with incredible detail and historic value, built by the Jesuits in the 18th century.

My local friend recommended that if I had to see only one Church of the hundreds that the city offered then this must be the one. This place has an entry ticket of 5$ and it is worth. The interior is gilded with gold everywhere. For sheer opulence and architecture this church has no parallel in the country. Pity that... More
