Catedral Metropolitana Maria Reina, Barranquilla
(4.2/5 based on 130 reviews on the web)
The simple and modern facade of Catedral Metropolitana Maria Reina, with it's harsh angular lines, conceals a world of color that streams throughout the interior of this 1955 Catholic cathedral. The church's construction took over 27 years to complete, designed in celebration of the Colombian-Caribbean religious heritage. What goes unnoticed from the exterior are the hundreds of stained-glass windows that illuminate the vast interior. Renowned Colombian sculptor Rodrigo Arenas Betancourt created the impressive sculpture of Christ that hangs from the ceiling, above the marble grand altar.

  • It is a temple little traditional, but very beautiful. With a beautiful meaning, every figure, every window is a work of art. To visit.

  • The cathedral of Barranquilla is big enough, but it does not offer much in mean of architecture or art. 
  • If you go to Barranquilla must visit the Metropolitan Cathedral of Barranquilla, where you can observe every corner details of modern art especially the central Christ. I highly recommend it.

  • This modern building is the most representative of Barranquilla Catholic Temple, consists of several elements which are considered very attractive by itself alone: the sculptural work of the maestro Rodrigo Arenas Betancourt, monument of 16 tons in homage to Christ liberator; large mosaics of San José and María Reina and gigantic stained-glass windows depicting the creation and the sacraments of the Catholic Church. To the front is located the plaza of the peace that blanket also Gallery and spacious areas green.

  • Shame as a place so beautiful and emblematic of the city becomes overshadowed by the amount of vicious who come to smoke marijuana in this sector 🚬. I'm not against them but many us uncomfortable that smell.

  • A full apology to the Catholic Church, never forget to visit its stunning interior and an exceptional religious art exhibition as curious note that your complete construction volume 27 years, and majestic sculpture in its inside is work by Rodrigo Arenas Betancourt, bears the name 'Christ liberator Latinoamericamo'
