This has some interesting murals and paintings. Really you can walk through on less than 30 minutes and see everything. How well you like it depends upon your interest in this type of art. Free entry though so if you have time and it's close...More

My grandson was baptized in the Cathedral on Feb 28, 2018, it has a majestic setting and the ceremony was wonderful. It was coordinated and arranged in the USA with the help of family in Peru.

Well-restored cathedral. The paintings on the ceiling inside are bright and lively. The outside is especially pretty when lit up at night.

We viewed as part of our tour in Trujillo and a stop at the square. We were free to roam inside on our own. The main alter is very large and impressive. There is a donation box if you wish to donate.

Near the Plaza Central, this cathedral is pristine. Restored from earlier times. There was a funeral mass going on when we dropped by, so we didn't get to see much. Luckily, it is near some excellent shopping, which is my favorite thing to do on...More
