Without doubt, the most outstanding building here is the Cathedral which is dedicated to the Patron Saint of Tegucigalpa, St. Michael Archangel. The Cathedral has recently been restored and is the pride of Downtown Tegucigalpa. It was built during Spanish Colonial rule between the years of 1765 and 1782, and its beautiful baroque altars are living proof to the importance that the silver mines of Tegucigalpa had to the Spanish rulers.
It has largely preserved the flavor of the colonial era. One of the attractions of Tegucigalpa is the markets. They sell not only agricultural products, but also handicrafts: pottery, wicker baskets, carved wooden sculpture.
