  Catedral de Guadelupe
by XanderDone
 
 

Construction of this church began in 1670, but it was definately less intricate and more rustic. The catherdal you see today was a part of a design that began to be constructed in 1835, and finished in 1839. However, it was destroyed during the earthquake in 1918, but rebuilt in 1924. Now with an amazing interior and façade, the cathedral is certainly a sight to see. It's still used today, and the day we were there, there was a funeral taking place, so we didn't dare go inside. So take that into consideration. They keep the doors open during the day, so just look inside and if there's something going on in there, please be polite and respect the services.
