Church · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Head to Parroquia de San Nicolas de Tolentino, a cathedral of Roman Catholic denomination and a storied building of Gothic tradition that attracts scores of tourists every year. It took a staggering 300 years to build, from the early 17th century to the late 19th century; today, it presides over the square with its intricate yet grandiose architecture. A successful renovation in 2009 transformed the building into a local treasure. Do some research beforehand, as the church sometimes closes for cleaning and there is no public access on these days.
