Stunning

This is such a beautiful place. Sitting quietly in the pews takes you back to many centuries ago. The architecture and detail are really stunning

Fine to see

Once you have visited the Basilica in Rome all other cathedrals suddenly appear less stunning. This is wha we felt unfortunately. But we do recommend you visit

Walk in, look up...

...and you will be met with the most beautiful, vivid, colorful paintings on the ceilings...make note of the incredible doors that open and fold in unique ways ~ if you are in Trujillo, take a minute and walk in the doors. You will not regret it. (The Pope is visiting in October ~ perhaps it is particularly spiffed up for his visit...whatever it is...GO!)

Beautiful 17th Century Cathedral on Plaza de Armas
May 2017 • Couples
Beautiful cathedral with 6-7 carved wood su altars and lots of interesting statuary and painting. One depicts St. Rose of Lima receding the sacrament of confirmation. Besutiful exterior. No one seems to give tours but it is a functioning church so be reverent. There is an interesting museum inside also

Lovely from the outside, but shut when we vaiited
Jun. 2016 • Couples
I believe it only keeps limited opening hours, so not surprised when we visited and it was shut.

The exterior is lovely in honey yellow tones and stands tall as a testament to Spanish conquest.

Good church in a nice square
Nov. 2014 • Solo
There are a lot of beautiful buildings around Plaza des Armas and the Cathedral is one of them.
The building is very coloured and in my opinion is more attractive from outside than inside.

Just Another Cathedral
Aug. 2015 • Couples
This catedral is pretty generic. The paintings on the ceilings are of recent vintage and are not great works of art. It's OK to skip the visit.

boring and dirty..
Apr. 2015 • Family
I went there for 6 months the whole town is dirty and there is trash in the street and I saw some teens peeing in the street. A man came by and tried to rob me of my shoes, good thing I know kung fu. He ran in pain. And you know what , the cops right beside me let him go, they didn't do anything, just walked away. Every time I went some where to eat, they tried to charge me more than the real price of the food. It was like, here pay for the napkins and the use of the bathroom and some toilet paper cost too. The worse place I have ever been to.

Concrete bunkers
Dec. 2014 • Couples
All of the churches in this town ended up looking like Russian era concrete bunkers. It's like the church ran out of money before they could make their places in this town somewhat "inspiring". Oh well, you can't win them all.

Lovely
Oct. 2014 • Family
Looked in one Saturday moring as doors were open and it seemed a service was about to start. Choir was singing beautifully, really professional and cathedral clean and bright with colourful paintings.
