(300+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building Church
Step through the heavy red doors of St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral and set your gaze along the central nave to admire a golden altar. Completed in 1612 according to an Andalucian-inspired design by Simón González, the episcopal cathedral adds an airy touch to the old streets of Cartagena, with its light yellow facade and pink dome. As you walk through the columned cathedral, look up to the top of the walls and behind the altar to appreciate a collection of intricate wood carvings. Plan your visit to St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Cartagena trip itinerary planner.
