Our Lady of Macas Cathedral

Church in Macas

The cathedral announces itself with a Technicolor virgin, looming over a plaza resembling an elaborate skate park. Inside, a tranquil, column-free space with stained glass telling episodes from the town's past ushers you up to the tiled altar depicting Macas in front of a bellowing volcano. Miracles are attributed to the painting of the Virgin of Macas (c 1592) on the altar.
