Santa Ana Cathedral, Santa Ana

#3 of 9 in Things to do in Santa Ana
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 holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Santa Ana Cathedral and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The most entertaining part was watching all the kids running around the pigeons. And there was a lot of pigeons! Other than that, it’s an old church.  more »
  • Took a stroll around the Cathedral and enjoy the locals and their different ethnic foods in the park across from the Cathedral.  more »
  • Arriving from elsewhere in central america where almost everything is colonial style, surprise find this great and beautiful NeoGothic Cathedral. Located in the heart of Santa Ana, in central park next to the theatre and close to the market. During the day and late afternoon the area is always full of locals and some tourists eating and drinking in the street spectrum, so it is quite safe. But as in all sites, better not go too clueless, so it can pass!
