Description:

The Cathedral was built n 1733 where other two churches stood before strong earthquakes destroyed them in the XVI and XVII centuries. The temple is dedicated to the Virgen de la Asuncion (Our Lady of the Assumption). The facade is an splendid elaborated 18th century baroque piece of art, with numerous sculptures and reliefs, framed with two towers. The Neo-Classic  interior, though beautiful, is not as interesting and stunning as the exterior, because it was plundered during the Reform War.
