Oruro Cathedral - Other Activity Oruro - Bolivia

The Oruro Cathedral sits atop a small staircase, directly opposite the secondary plaza in the center of town (east of Plaza10 de Febrero). Fairly unimpressive, the cathedral is clearly showed up by its other half, the Sanctuario de la Virgen del Socav├│n. In 1994 the original baroque entrance of the cathedral was transfered over to the sanctuary, which it adorns today, leaving this one bare and uninspiring. If you do still wish to take a look however, be prepared for life-sized religious statues and angelic music overhead.

Located on the northwest corner of Calle Adolfo Mier and Soria Galvarro.
