  • CATHEDRAL SAN JOSÉ DE CÚCUTA first part by history is known that there was the parish church of San Luis on the right bank of the Pamplonita River. But they were settlers reaching the Valley, forming a settlement between the rivers Pamplonita and Zulia. Doña Juana Rangel de Cuéllar gave part of their properties, in that June 17, 1733 to make the hamlet; then, residents began to request the erection of a new parish grounds as a strong reason the obstacle imposed the floods of the River to prevent the mass attendance.

But I get on May 17, 1875 the fateful earthquake. Died the coat with the destruction of the temple and thousands of citizens, together with the people, were destroyed. The image of San Jose and Nuestra Señora de los Remedios crowned as our Lady of Cucuta on May 18, 1950, on the 75th anniversary of the disastrous episode remained intact among the ruins and decided that the last Sunday in May was the patron. After fourteen years of the earthquake, during which exercised the Catholic worship in the chapels of the hospital and san Antonio, Pastor Marcos Hernandez, put on May 12, 1889 the first stone of what will be the new (current) Temple of San José. This priest and several successors pastors were building and ornamentando, with the vicissitudes of the war of the thousand days and the first world war that made delay its completion and decoration.
