Catedral Diocesana, Zipaquira

4.6
#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.

  • I had seen it in two previous visits, but it had not entered before. It is really impressive, a very beautiful Cathedral. All brick, which makes it very special, with an attractive, unique and distinct from other churches that I know of.

  • 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.
  • Nearby a village wonderful and cute, one of the wonders of the world, the Zipaquira salt mines. Just a natural beauty. Come and see. We recommend.
