Catedral Metropolitana information
Facing Parque Central, this was constructed between 1782 and 1815 (the towers were finished in 1867). It has survived earthquake and fire well, though the earthquakes of 1917 and 1976 did substantial damage. Its heavy proportions and sparse ornamentation don't make for a particularly beautiful building, but it has a certain stateliness, and the altars are worth a look.
