Catedral Metropolitana de Guayaquil, Guayaquil

4.3
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 beautiful inside and outside also. I think it has something of neo Gothic because its pointed end upwards. The front of the Park the iguanas. If you're out there you can take advantage of going to these 2 places.

  • Magnificent and very religious place. They have to visit the Cathedral at Guayaquil. Its architecture is really impressive both inside as it is outside. So don't be a Catholic is a very valuable route that every tourist to do when visiting the beautiful Cathedral of the city of Guayaquil. The front is Park seminar or Iguanas. Recommended!

Where to stay in Guayaquil

Guayaquil's sprawling layout means its center isn't strictly defined, with accommodations spread throughout several neighborhoods. To enjoy the most iconic Guayaquil setting, stay in the riverside neighborhood of Las Penas. For easy access to public parks and some of the best attractions in Guayaquil, stay in the bustling district of La Bahia. If you want a more suburban experience, look farther north to the neighborhood of Simon Bolivar.
