Today after meeting for class and discussing culture, we visited The Cathedral of Lima. During our tour we were able to learn about the large influence that the church has had on the history of the city, as well as present day cultural elements. Learning about the intricate infrastructure as well as the time and creativity that it took in order to build the cathedral was my favorite part of this trip. The inside is filled with beautiful wooden pieces as well as detailed paintings. It is so refreshing to see the things that were happening on this side of the world during this time in history. This cathedral was undoubtedly one of the most intricate buildings I have seen during my time in Lima and I am excited to explore for my last few days in this city.
