Iglesia de Los Capuchinos, Cordoba

(1,800+ reviews on the web)
Church Tourist Spot
Stop and take a second look at Iglesia de Los Capuchinos to convince your eyes you're not just seeing things--the twin-spired church is, in fact, missing its left spire. What might seem like an unfinished job actually represents the death of the body, while the completed right spire depicts the soul's ascension to heaven. Step inside to absorb the dazzling blue ceiling and appreciate the church's renowned paintings and striped columns. Although it seems much older, the Franciscan church was only completed in 1936. Plan to see Iglesia de Los Capuchinos and other attractions that appeal to you using our Cordoba holiday planner.

  • We didn't go inside because the entrance was covered with a tarp as if they were working on it. But the outside is unique and beautiful.  more »
  • Stunning church from the outside; well worth a visit even if you didn't go in. The interior is strangely subdued and somewhat lacklustre after the fabulous exterior.  more »
  • Beautiful church worth visiting and walk inside and also take pictures from outside. It´s also located in the heart of a nice neighborhood Nueva Cordoba. A must in town  more »

  • Very impressive to have a look in the Capuchin church! We saw a service at 21 o'clock this Sunday and there was beautiful music and good atmosphere!
  • Amazing church! Colors and design. I've been to many all over the world and this is one of my all time favorite. Don't forget to take the stairs all the way up to see the top section.
  • Its architecture is stunning both inside and out. It is very, very beautiful. You stay to just watching it. The best thing to do is to climb the ladder that is on the right side of the altar to the image of Mary that is high, also the ladder takes you to a room with an incredible for a moment of prayer acoustic. And it allows you to see the Church from above.

  • Built in neo-Gothic style by Augusto Ferrari this church is without a doubt one of the points most attractions in the city of Córdoba. I suggest a guided tour!

  • Very nice evening. Inside, the altar is majestic. Many people write prayers in a notebook to Padre Pio, open to the public.
