Cathedral of Our Lady of Poverty Pereira, Pereira
(4.8/5 based on 120+ 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.

  • Is the main Catholic Church in the city of Pereira and is located on Praza de Bolivar. For who likes of architecture is ideal, because the ceiling is formed by a very old wooden structure. Ideal place to pray in silence and meet with God.

  • In the heart of the city, to give thanks and to observe the architecture of the place. A site with great influx of people.

  • It is certainly a place to visit, its structure and architecture leave to surprise more than their Catholic beauty.
