Catedral Metropolitana Maria Reina, Barranquilla

4.3
#1 of 13 in Historic Sites in Barranquilla
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 located in the Centre of the city of Barranquilla, to one side of the Plaza de la Paz. It is a stunning art nouveau style construction; and its spacious interior highlights the beautiful sculpture of the Christ liberator, the stained glass windows and mosaics.

  • It is very beautiful, the mother of all churches, hurts to do much heat there inside, but that doesn't mean that every time there is special.

  • Beautiful building, fantastic stained glass on the sides and back, a magnificent sculpture behind the pulpit and much symbolism. Visit.

  • It has been one of my favorite places Barranquilla, majestic architecture filled with much symbolism. Large, fresh, clean, silent, a cathedral worthy to represent this city. It is a required point of visits for tourists and residents although poorly marketed. It should give more love to the tourism in Barranquilla.
