An impressive symbol of faith and beauty, imposing structure and standing out in the heart of the city.
The Cathedral is composed of three naves and four chapels, it has the shape of a Latin Cross, with Transept, Apse and Presbytery. The main nave is covered by a barrel vault with lunettes and reinforced arches, the side naves have small domes, the main facade shows a triangular pediment and two bell towers. Almost the entire structure is composed of the traditional quincha, with cane and mud framework. The columns of the main nave have a reticular wooden structure. The vertical elements are connected to each other by horizontal and inclined leather ties thus giving a precise structural function. Apparently the original construction techniques gave that natural tightness of the leather straps through their natural drying after installation.
Located at the intersection of La Libertad and Bolibar streets, next to the Plaza de Armas.
The most attractive thing for this cathedral, represents its wonderful styles in which they are based, in the outer part is observed a neoclassical style represented in its cover in addition in the pediment figures in high relief and in the inner part, the baroque style of the pulpit and the altars.
