It's crazy that they have all of these old ruins and we didn't have to pay anything to look at them. Most of them had no tour guide or anything. We were able to climb all over them. In the US it would be like $30 to tour it and it would be in much better shape. But still it was very interesting to see. You don't get much from the tour that exists because it is all in espanol- so you have to do some google research too.
Here we are in front of an old cathedral. The roof had fallen and it was in major disrepair!
We were able to climb up a small mountain to get this picture. It is the top wall of the fort that goes around the city. Inside the city walls they have just gone about living. Not really trying to keep it historial or anything. There is a hard rock cafe' inside , many restaurants, and trash in the abandoned buildings.
Here is one of the oldest cathedrals in the Americas. It looks a lot like the National Cathedral in Washington D.C. We listened to a tour in espanol- didn't catch much. They speak so fast and do not enunciate anything. So it is quite difficult learning the language.
