Established in the year 1582, the Cordoba Cathedral was built by indigenous artisans and laborers under instruction of Juan Rodriguez the master mason and Gregorio Ferreira, the public works director. In 1677, the original structure of the cathedral collapsed. It was later redesigned and constructed, albeit incompletely. In 1709, the incomplete cathedral was inaugurated. Next to the cathedral is the old town hall, but the two structures are separated by the Santa Catalina Promenade.
In 1941, the cathedral was declared a National Historical Monument. From 2007 to 2009, it underwent major renovation and restoration works. It is now one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country.Places nearby:
