Iglesia El Sagrario (Old Cathedral) - Historical Building Cuenca - Ecuador

The Iglesia El Sagrario, also known as the Old Cathedral, sits across the Parque Calder贸n from La Inmaculada, and is well worth a visit. If you wander inside, you鈥檒l see no pews or altars, but many interesting artifacts. There is even a glass window in the floor through which you can see a small section of the catacombs below. The catacombs look sort of like a shallow well with several neatly arranged skulls. There is also a small museum inside (Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-1 p.m. and 1:30-5:30 p.m., Saturday-Sunday 0 a.m.-1 p.m.).
