Catedral de Ica - Historical Building Ica - Peru

Set off from one corner of the Plaza de Armas is Ica’s Catedral which was once part of a Jesuit complex. Built in the 18th century and remodeled in 1814, this temple had Baroque-style pulpits and altars inside. In the 2007 earthquake, the Cathedral suffered extensive damage: the bell towers and apse walls were partly destroyed and the apse roof partially collapsed. You can still appreciate the exterior of the church, with its Neo-Classical and Baroque touches, like the lacy octagonal cupolas that topped the aisle domes. It is slated to be demolished, to make room for a new church.
