Catedral de la Ciudad de Potosi, Potosi

(3.9/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
A relic of the 19th century, Catedral de la Ciudad de Potosi boasts a mix of Baroque and neoclassical styles. The minor basilica was built of stones and two bricks, with a dome and two towers. Step inside to find relics of silver and gold, as well as views of the surrounding cities from the bell towers. Though you may find the grand facade somewhat bare, the ornate interior compensates with white pillars and gold accents. Strictly speaking, you can only access the church during scheduled masses--otherwise you'll have to plead with the groundskeeper during off times.

  • Beautiful and very old cathedral that goes back and transports you to the times of the conquest and Spanish colony, 500 years ago. It was recently refurbished and it is in excellent condition. Worth t...  more »
  • The Potosi Cathedral is a real tourist icon both inside and outside. The interior shows a architecture that combines with the paintings and the relics that are exposed, while outside harmonizes with the environment nuanced by the imposing Cerro Rico, the Casa de la Moneda, the Tower of the company of Jesus, San Francisco, the Church of La Merced and other monuments that represent part of the wealth of tourist and historical of the city of Potosi.
