Catedral de Manizales, Manizales

(500+ reviews on the web)
Church
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. Make Catedral de Manizales a centerpiece of your Manizales vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Manizales vacation route planner.

  • Not only you can see your beautiful architecture but that it also has several activities within. Not to be missed if you go through Manizales

  • Nice view and many interesting facts in the guided view. Lots of stairs but worth it. Very nice and very good coffee

  • Taking an external elevator access to a sector of the Cathedral where you have set a place to taste the excellent coffee of Caldas. It has also an excellent view over the city and get valuable books on the history of the city.
