The Cathedral, built thanks to the Mercedarian Fathers, is the most beautiful in Nicaragua from an artistic point of view, because of its pure Central American baroque style without a mix of other styles. On March 8, 2011, Bishop Rolando José Álvarez Lagos was appointed ninth bishop of our diocese.
Ever since his appointment at the Diocese on April 2 the same year, he has worked on the preparation of the Pastoral Instruction to guide in the proper progress of the diocese and remain in compliance with provisions from the Diocesan Synod and Diocesan Assemblies.
