Catedral de Nuestra Senora de La Paz, Leticia

(95 reviews on the web)
Church Tourist Spot
One of the main parishes of the city, Catedral de Nuestra Senora de La Paz also draws visitors with its unusual daily inward migration of parakeets. Arriving to sleep among the cathedral's trees,the birds serve as a reminder of the cathedral's location- in the heart of an Amazonian city. Head to the top of the bell tower, where the view of the arriving parakeets is unparalleled. The narrow staircase leading to the top may prove difficult for those with mobility issues. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Leticia holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Catedral de Nuestra Senora de La Paz and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
