Catedral de la Ciudad de Potosi, Potosi

4.1
#3 of 8 in Historic Sites in Potosi Department
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.

  • The visit has nothing exceptional either. However the view from the steeple of the cerro rico and the city is beautiful. The person who did the small tour is very nice

  • A little disappointed to pay 20 bolivianos to certainly have a guide but the inside is not top. Style a little baroque but less crowded. However we have access to the balcony and the Bell Tower d, where we have a very nice view of the city.

  • The cathedral becomes a unique space for the religious history of Potosi. Inside it is a magnificent building with excellent decoration with several years old. You can access the Tower, from where you have a panoramic view of the city and even more of the central square, surrounded by historical buildings.
