Catedral Metropolitana de Guayaquil, Guayaquil

4.3
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Guayaquil
Appreciate the remarkable sense of light and space you get standing inside Catedral Metropolitana de Guayaquil. Constructed between 1924 and 1937 to replace Guayaquil's original wooden cathedral (which burned down on the same site in 1692), the beige, twin-spired structure dominates the city center. With simple light-colored columns and arches that climb high to the cavernous ceiling, the cathedral seems remarkably airy. Admire the many stained glass windows, depicting famous religious scenes in dazzling color.

  • Architecturally beautiful Cathedral from the outside, but not so impressive internally. Never-the-less it is worth a visit, located across the road from Parque Bolívar.  more »
  • The Metropolitan Cathedral of Guayaquil, also known as Saint Peter's Cathedral, is a cathedral located in downtown Guayaquil, in the Park Seminary, was originally built of wood in which at that time was the main square of the city, and It was rebuilt in cement in the century XX, is Gothic. The Cathedral has attached the Archbishop's Palace in Guayaquil and the offices of the Metropolitan curia, all in neo-Gothic style. You must-attend event if you are in Guayaquil, is those places that are visited almost inadvertently as it is in the center of Guayaquil, a few metres from the seafront.

  • This Cathedral in the center of the city is very well decorated. Its architecture is rich. A place of very frequent meditation. Attention to the opening.
