Catedral Diocesana, Zipaquira
Categories: Churches, Tourist Spots
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.
