I enjoyed visiting the cathedral. I loved the murals painted on 6 different sections. The person in charge gives you a little tour with the history of the cathedral and information about the different parts of the building.

Well worth a visit to this cathedral to see the internal paintings, art and structure. A beautiful little cathedral that shouldn't be missed if you have the chance to spend half an hour admiring the internals even if not of the religious kind.

Santiago is one of those cities that I didn't expect to like so much but I did. In the city's historic center you can find this beautiful and very old church that has so much history. I attended a Sunday mass and felt extremely blessed.
