Dont miss this huge Cathedral! It took 160 yrs to build and is highly visible from the old part of the City.

Gold galore in a beautiful setting, interesting history and neighboring the Place Independencia. Also worthwhile to visit the teleferique if your altitude tolerance is good

Yes, they have specific schedules for masses and of course every sunday the church is closed for visits and it is only open for locals to attend a mass.
