There is a big Catholic Cathedral (“La Catedral de la Inmaculada Concepcion” or “Catedral Nueva”) in town across from the main square (Parque Calderon). It replaced an older cathedral (established 1787) which is on the other side of the square. The new cathedral was built from 1885 to 1899. It was never completely finished. The intent was to have two tall towers at the front of the church, but it was determined that the foundation would not support the intended design, so it stopped as it is today. There is an enormous gold-leaf canopy over the altar which is very imposing. I felt very small and insignificant inside the cathedral. It kind-of reminded me of the vengeful god in the Old Testament.
