The Cathedral is definitely the most beautiful part of the town. It is especially beautiful at night, with all the beautiful lights around it. It lies in the very center of the city, being part of the main square. Really worth a visit.

This is one of the main highlights of Chitre and shouldn't be missed. Most impressively it seems the church is primarily used as well... a church. People still seem to go here by the hundreds and because of this its looked after and well maintained.

It's a relic with history behind it. I felt as if part of a past from a long time ago. The locals must be very religious. This church has the center stage in this town.
