Cathedral of Our Lady of Poverty Pereira, Pereira
(4.9/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Escape from the busy streets of El Centro and retreat to the cool, calm masterpiece of Cathedral of Our Lady of Poverty Pereira. Built in 1890, the former Catholic church boasts a truly unique architectural style--with 13,503 pieces of curly cumin wood forming an intricate latticed ceiling. The exterior and interior are both of brick construction, the latter decorated with sculptures and figurines. Pope Pius XII elevated the church to a cathedral in December 1952. Poke your head in, gaze at the ceiling, and tour the catacombs if the gate is open.

  • I thought I was in Europe visiting one of many cathedrals like that, the arquitecture is the same. Located in the center of Manizales, 
  • A large Cathedral in the heart of Pereira, worth a visit his special style to this church.
