Catedral Diocesana, Zipaquira

4.4
#2 of 9 in Historic Sites in Cundinamarca Department
Located in the historical center of Zipaquira, Catedral Diocesana dominates the landscape with its two bell towers. Construction of the neoclassical cathedral began in 1805 and took a full 111 years to complete. Stand in the adjacent square and snap a few photos of the stately exterior, then step inside to see the stone and brick interior, contrasted with the wooden pews. Two rows of massive pillars support an arched roof all the way down to the altar. Though mostly illuminated artificially, some small windows on the side walls also provide lighting.

  • Is imposing and takes care of the place. To get the most square overlaps between the buildings. I loved.

  • Beautiful architecture. Beautiful. I was super amazed to see it. We recommend visiting one weekend because week does not open it, I was in week but thank God we talk with the father and we told her that we were tourists and allowed us to see her.

  • It was a holiday and the Church was closed. A pity, but she and beautiful on the outside. Worth it for the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá.

  • The Cathedral was being repaired as we visited so I wasn't able to see inside but the link between this and the Catedral de Sal was great.
  • Spectacular Cathedral. It took 110 years to build. Visit us at: Intagram: @Recorriendomaravillas Youtube: walking wonders
