Overlooking the Plaza de Armas is the neoclassical Catedral Metropolitana, built between 1748 and 1800. Bishops celebrating mass on the lavish main altar may feel uneasy: beneath them is the crypt where their predecessors are buried. The church's exterior was undergoing renovations as of press time. They expect to pull back the curtains in June 2015.
