Owner description: Situated on top of some ancient Inca ruins, this cathedral was built in 1557 when modern Cuenca was founded.

The old cathedral is every bit as inspiring as the new cathedral. There is a small admission charge ($1.50 each) which goes to the restoration of the facility. You cannot take pictures but you are allowed to pick a postcard featuring some aspect of the cathedral. They also have available a brochure about the history which has several representative pictures. They are doing a good job of keeping this jewel alive.
