Iglesia de San Nicolas de Tolentino, Barranquilla

(4.4/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Iglesia de San Nicolas de Tolentino a centerpiece of your Barranquilla vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Barranquilla trip itinerary planner.

  • Is of highlight the good work of improvement both of the infrastructure of the Church as of the square from the front. Until a few years ago it was a depressing, bad site client and forgotten city and with works of improvement has become a beautiful tourist attraction of the city which does not resemble anything to what was just a few years. The true change has been admiring. Hopefully continue to with them works of improvement in the surroundings of the area of nature colonial and thus follow recovering the area historical of Barranquilla.

  • Located in the Centre of Barranquilla in Paseo de Bolivar with 42 career, it has a small sector of external parking, although in immediate vicinity you can find others. The Church is a building full of small details beautiful in its NeoGothic architecture both on the outside and inside, sconces and wood accents give it a value extra. It is a beautiful place to meet. as any capital Center, you must have a minimum of precautions with your objects.

  • Beautiful architecture of our Church, remodeled, excellent to spend a ratico, which only remains in the Centre and the cameras, because of insecurity and the site cannot be removed for a long time.
