Iglesia de San Nicolas de Tolentino, Barranquilla

4.3
#3 of 17 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.

  • There are few places as old in Barranquilla, perhaps this is the place with more history of the city as there comes the current name as a transformation of "Barrancas de San Nicolás". I wish to participate of a Eucharist in that place, is really wonderful. Take a coffee break or a raspao in the square under the shade of trees and surrounded by trade quillero is delicious!
