  • Cathedrals around LA are always an inescapable visit. This is the case and in addition is one of livelier spots in Santa Cruz. Go around carefully enough not to bother people performing rites. There' s a museum inside, close to the main altar. Some preserved colonial catholic objects in silver arw at display. Is closed around mid day.
  • The church is beautiful both outside and in. We climbed the bell tower which gave good views of the surroundings. There is a large plaza in front of the church where many people gathered.
