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.

    Nice village to visit after the cathedral. 1 hour and have lunch in the typical restaurant along the road going up to the cathedral  more »

    Cathedral with a big charm and overlooking the central square of the town. I recommend absolutely to visit inside. I had never seen a church like this: truly striking interior, where the columns that divide the naves are made with insertions of pieces of brick trimmed.

    It is a very beautiful place to the religious gathering and to admire the architecture and religious art present here, as well as is located in the Centre of Zipaquirá, which allows easy access.

    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.
