Catedral de Manizales, Manizales
(4.6/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Catedral de Manizales remains a towering example of 20th-century religious architecture and one of the best-known places of worship in the country. On this site, churches have been built and rebuilt after natural disasters and fires since the mid-19th century. The current building was completed in 1939, designed to be earthquake resistant. The pragmatic elements of the church are balanced with the bold Neo-Gothic style and ornamental stained glass work, a decorated main tower that reaches 106 m (348 ft) into the sky, and a vast interior with many religious artworks.

  • In our tour of the city of manizales. We arrived without waiting for us at the Cathedral. That from the beginning characterized as imposing in its Gothic style and its large domes. as it was Sunday the influx of parishioners was high. without thinking we entered one side of the Church and read please visit the Polish corridor. We buy the entrance that has a cost of 10 pesos. more or less 3 dollars. We hope the call of the Guide to enter to visit the Cathedral from the inside. the activities that are performed in are. 1. know the costructores of the Cathedral through photographs. 2. video about the past, present of the Cathedral. 3. travel by scalar. 4 you get to a first Estació and you find yourself with a steep stands q are as in a coquita. 5. If you have vertigo don't look so down 6. you get to a point half that allows you to see into the Cathedral where is underway the Eucharist 7. here already began the tour by the roughly 260 seats. as you raise are narrower. 8 get to the top and get a very good view of the city.
