Wonderful architecture, beautiful inertial, located in the center of Cuenca. A very nice place to visit. Also check the Old Cathedral that is a museum now and holds wonderful concerts.

Really large and spectacular church! Stopping in to admire the art and architecture is a must while in Cuenca. A very European feel in the middle of South America, which given the history, makes sense. I hope to come back!

Among many beautiful churches found around Cuenca. What sets this one apart is its location, size, active congregants, design history and the view from upstairs. Definitely worth a 20-30 minute visit.

Wow oh Wow! What a beautiful church, both inside and out. Pictures do not do this church justice. You will just have to check it out for yourself!!! Stained glasses windows were outstanding!!

We climbed the stairs to the top of the church to see the views of the city, but you could not see the inside of the Cathedral from the top. Amazing architecture.
