Catedral de Santiago: The Cathedral of Antigua

The east side of th Parque Central is dominated by the Catedral de Santiago. It was founded in 1542 and badly damaged by several major earthquakes. After the great earthquake in 1773 it was only partially rebuilt. Instead of the original five naves today only one is still present. Still today the damages caused by earthquakes are clearly visible.
