La construcción de esta catedral se inició el 29 de octubre de 1669 y se inauguró el 5 de noviembre de 1680. Destruida por los terremotos de 29 de julio de 1773 y 4 de febrero de 1976, la restauración de su fachada fue posible por haberla financiado el industrial guatemalteco Humberto Suarez Valdés. La ciudad de Antigua Guatemala, sus autoridades edilicias y el Consejo Nacional para la Protección de la Antigua Guatemala, le dejan testimonio por medio de esta placa, de su gratitud por tan oportuno y valioso donativo.
