Good example of historical church of the Old Spanish style. In a historical area of the city with other attractions and shrines across the street. Beautiful park with informative history boards written in English. Open on Sundays.

It's not bad, it's just a cathedral. Unfortunately, it was under construction too when we went to visit.
