Iglesia Catedral Neuquen, Neuquen

3.5
#4 of 6 in Historic Sites in Province of Neuquen
Admire the power of simplicity at Iglesia Catedral Neuquen, the main Catholic cathedral at the heart of the city. Constructed in the mid 20th century, it features an unfussy red brick facade contrasted by a striking white bell tower. Head inside to observe the exposed brick and wood interior, surprisingly spacious with soaring columns and high stained glass windows. Look for the tomb of Don Jaime de Nevares, the first bishop of Neuquen. Arrange to visit Iglesia Catedral Neuquen and other attractions in Neuquen using our Neuquen tourist route planner.

    Very nice and quiet church with a shop next to religious items. Open to the public all day.

    visit the Cathedral and let ourselves be surprised by its warm atmosphere and somewhat dark due to the coated interior entirely in wood, including warhead ceilings. the image of the central Christ hangs from the ceiling using wires not visible to give a unique effect. We are seeing the 7 PM mass. warm and musical with guitars. very emotional.

Where to stay in Neuquen

Still relatively underdeveloped in terms of tourist-oriented infrastructure, Neuquen mostly offers lodgings suitable for business travelers and visitors staying a single night before moving on to Bariloche. Arguably the best choice for tourists on a budget, centrally located guesthouses provide decent rooms close to most major stores and restaurants. If you arrive without a reservation in hand, your best bet remain the city's hostels, catering to students and backpackers and offering private and shared rooms.
