The spiritual heart of the city, the brooding, grey cathedral was begun in the early 15th century, soon after the Spanish conquest, but took 350 years to complete. The neoclassical facade contrasts with the interior, which is a fine example of what some art historians have named Atlantic Gothic, with lofty columns which seem to mimic the palm trees outside. The retable above the high altar comes from Catalunya (mainland Spain) and the exquisite lamp hanging before the altar was made in Genoa (Italy). There are also several paintings by Juan de Miranda, the islands’ most- respected 18th-century artist.
