Local landmark, but nothing especially noteworthy about the exterior or interior. If you are in the centro, it's definitely worth a walk-around.

Cathedrale of Santa Cruz is An incredible human work. This big monument is located in the center of the city of Santa Cruz and is the landmark for you to head in the alleys of the city

The Catedral, known also as Basilica de San Lorenzo (full name) is an architectural icon of the city. Located in the south east corner of the 24 de septiembre main square, this is the main catholic church of the city.

Located on a central square in the downtown area, the interior of the basilica is stunning in silver. It's also located in a good shopping area with nearby restaurants.

It is a spot not to miss if you go to Santa Cruz. It has historic value and you shouldn't miss climbing up the stairs to enjoy the view!

This cathedral sets the plaza and is beautiful at night to look at. The inside is basic but has a very unique silver alter. Worth a visit. Go to the bar across the street for nice view

It's the main attraction in the plaza. Open to visitors and it doesn't scream tourist trap. Well maintained. It's the pride of Santa Cruz. At night it's beautifully illuminated. They offer the opportunity to claims the bell tower if you're interested. Not very ornate inside...More
