Construction for the church began in the 16th Century, and the ornate interiors largely date from this period while the 18th-century exteriors highlight a Baroque influence. The cathedral's original plan envisaged two bell towers, but due to the vast expenditure, only one was ever completed, leading to the nickname La Manquita, meaning lady with one arm.
