It is amazing to walk by this church at different times of the day and different days of the week and find it to be so active within the community with locals. Visitors, it is a true gem to photograph and admire. A side entrance...More

Spent a lovely afternoon here. The ruins are beautiful and almost surreal. The arches and column are still standing while the roof has caved in. Spent most of our time in the ruins. Got some great pictures.

I visited the Cathedral on a weekday afternoon, so there were no crowds or religious services being conducted. The Cathedral is large and spacious inside, with a number of chapels in addition to the nave. Lighting was natural, so it was somewhat dark inside. The...More

Cathedral has a lot of character with colourful walls, decorations, guilded artifacts. At Christmas time the sides have various nativity displays.

a splendid facade towards the central square, but when you enter there is hardly any church. behind are the ruins of the old cathedral, now reduced to a small part without any particular value. All together more impressive from outside then from within.

As we do in many cities, we called into the Cathedral de Santiago for a quick look. The exterior is very impressive and inside there are several statues of saints to which people can offer prayers and light candles. Most visitors are very respectful and...More

While I'm not religious, it is easy to be awed by both the inside and outside of this cathedral. The outside has gorgeous architecture and statues. While I didn't take any photos of the inside because it felt disrespectful, on the there are life-size versions...More

The cathedral is composed of two areas: the plaza-facing narrow church building still used for ecclesiastical functions and the empty shell of the main cathedral, once grand and full of glory and now roofless and filled with sad chunks of stone. Observing the finely-worked walls...More
