Construction of New Cathedral started in 1885 and lasted for almost a century. The cathedral has three giant domes which are covers in blue glazed tile from the Czech Republic. There are also beautiful stained glass windows created by a Spanish artist.
We walk a few blocks to the Canari Museum, which unfortunately is closed. Around the corner, however is Museo de las Conceptas. This is a convent which occupies a full city block and is still occupied by the Conceptas nuns.
Approximately 25% of the convent has been restored and opened as a museum with paintings, sculptures crosses and dishware which has been donated as dowries over the years. The original buildings were completed from 1682 to 1729. Additional buildings were added in the 1800's. The restoration mostly used the original materials.
