Plenty of gold leaf and heavy baroque style but the black Christ was an interesting feature. Also interesting was the painting of the Last Supper with the guinea pig being served as the main dish.

A cathedral in a par with many we’ve seen in Europe. It’s got its own South American feel but definitely worth checking out!

Full of gorgeous colonial art! This place is bigger than expected so don't arrive too close to closing like I did. Budget a good two hours or more. A guide would have been a better choice - I easily found the "Last Supper" with Guinea...More

No need to book in advance. You should be able to get in during the day unless there is a reason that the church is closed.
