Catedral Metropolitana de Guayaquil, Guayaquil
(4.2/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The Cathedral is located in a central area of the city of Guayaquil. The iguana Park right in front, across the street. The Cathedral is open to the public and tuene several very beautiful images inside. Space, however, maintains an environment collected and silent, suitable for people who want to take advantage of to pray.

  • If you want to take a photo and pass through the Cathedral can make you it the same day you go to the Park the iguanas. Both are places not to be missed. Do not forget to bring your camera
