Santa Ana Cathedral, Santa Ana

(4.7/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
Sitting in the heart of Santa Ana, Santa Ana Cathedral boasts a neo-Gothic style not typical of cathedrals in the country. Built from 1906 to 1956, when the marble altar of the Virgin Mary was finally completed, the structure is almost completely comprised of red brick, except for its grand white facade, adorned with white ornate moldings. Two towers found either side of the face feature three bells. Step inside and find towering white and pink pillars and arches creating a sense of spaciousness in an already grand building. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Santa Ana Department holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Santa Ana Cathedral and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Not the most impressive of Central American cathedrals but worth a quick visit. Free to enter. 100's of pigeons outside being fed watch out for poo! 
  • The Cathedral in Santa Ana is quite beautiful, and worth a walk around if you're in town. We were there around Christmas Eve and the church was really lovely inside. 
  • Excelente ambiente religioso, para vivir las vísperas de la Natividad de nuestro Señor Jesús. El montaje del nacimiento está bello
