After all it is the main city Cathedral... be rude not to visit. Certainly worth a look at the fantastic alter and decorations.

We enjoyed seeing this church with our guide, Marcelo. We did get to see part of the changing of the guard. The different alters were beautiful!

The outside gives no clue of the splendor inside. An edifice to centuries of religious practice and decoration.

Mwoh, quite boring, BA has more beautiful churches nearby, no real reason to visit unless you want to be in a major town location

Do not miss the changing of the guard every 2 hours. Do visit the resting place of the Cardinal, with a display of letters expressing the thanks of the Jewish people for his support. Enjoy the architecture
