A neoclassical-style building built in 1706, the San Pedro Cathedral stands on a small, colonial-style square.
This colonial baroque cathedral has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since June 2011. It was promoted to a basilica in the 19th century.
Built in 1810, this church is especially known for its sculptures and its façade, which are mainly in the Spanish colonial style but with a French touch.
The cathedral is the final resting place for a number of deceased prominent individuals, such as Ruben Dario, a famous Nicaraguan poet.
The majority of the Nicaraguan population is either Mestizo or White, followed by Amerindians and then African-Americans.
