This is a beautiful old church on Avenue Central and is worth a visit although it was under significant construction when visited. The adjacent plaza, Plaza Central is quite pretty.

Not a waist of your time - you will enjoy the majestic, antique craftsmanship of this Cathedral. Very authentic and beautiful.

Not even the frnt can be seen. Go to the plaza in front and take a break with the free wifi. One block from the paseo de las bovedas.

I've been to this Cathedral in the past when it was open. It has been closed for restoration for some time. You can't go inside and see it's treasures. The exterior is under almost complete scaffolding. I'm not sure when it will be finished but I am hopeful that it will be soon and that the authorities will bring it back to the wonderful pristine state that delights all who have visited in the past.
