Iglesia de San Nicolas de Tolentino, Barranquilla

4.3
#4 of 13 in Historic Sites in Barranquilla
Head to Iglesia de San Nicolas de Tolentino, a cathedral of Roman Catholic denomination and a storied building of Gothic tradition that attracts scores of tourists every year. It took a staggering 300 years to build, from the early 17th century to the late 19th century; today, it presides over the square with its intricate yet grandiose architecture. A successful renovation in 2009 transformed the building into a local treasure. Do some research beforehand, as the church sometimes closes for cleaning and there is no public access on these days.

    It is a very beautiful church, unfortunately could not visit it inside because it was closed. It is striking and impressive, quite in contrast with the place where is located, dirty area, with too much trade Street, maintains a sense of permanent insecurity for the tourist. It is the most beautiful thing that we find in Barranquilla, if already are there, don't miss it.

    I loved the design of this church in the Centre of the city. The colors, the walls, the style. Excellent to take a postcard.

Where to stay in Barranquilla

Equipped to host the largest festival in the country, Barranquilla has a good set of accommodations catering to a range of tastes, budgets, and interests. Either side of Carrera 46, find pristine chain hotels and smaller independent options with extensive amenities, such as rooftop swimming pools, modern spas, and popular restaurants. Look to the more residential areas for budget-friendly guesthouses, and consider booking a rental apartment if planning on a longer stay. Economical options cluster around Paseo Bolivar, but note the area can be rather sketchy. Be sure to reserve well in advance if planning on visiting for Mardi Gras in February.
