Catedral de Parana, Parana

An elegant architectural find, Catedral de Parana stands ornately white and detailed, preceding a city square. The eclectic Renaissance-style cathedral was built in 1885, with two twin towers of elaborate design, a blue outer dome, three interior naves, four bells in the belfry, six colonnades, and quatrefoil-shaped windows. An imposing statue of St. Peter greets visitors at the entrance, which leads to a simple interior filled with images of saints most revered by the community. An important symbol of local pride, the building was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1942.

  • A beautiful church. Impressive architecture with a dome reminiscent of Aparecida in Brazil outside a shows the birds that stay on top of the Church and they are not few.

  • It is one of the most important of the city of Paraná, as well as the peace prevailing in the interior where you can get to participate in some of the masses.

  • Classical Cathedral of the interior of the country. Although it has its details, it is still recommended to visit. It is not a particularly old church, given the young city.

  • Beautiful Cathedral, with life-size images, several altars and in the main is the SanJuanPablo II and the Holy CuraBrochero, is very well cared for, when you visit it was a very delicate Manger armed. Its architecture is worthy of visit. One of the cathedrals most beautiful of Argentina

  • It is located in the street S.S. Francisco (Ex Monte Caseros) between Urquiza and 25 de Mayo streets in front of the square on May 1. Eclectic style, the building has two towers and a dome, in the interior aisles and at the entrance a statue of San Pedro. It was declared national historical heritage, so it is matter of great pride for paranaense citizenship.
