Catedral Metropolitana, Guatemala City
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
From your first sight of Catedral Metropolitana, you'll be impressed by the striking and majestic facade. Its strength and majesty is not just cosmetic; the building, constructed in baroque and neoclassical styles, has withstood numerous earthquakes over the years. Today it serves as the main church for Guatemala City, having been consecrated in 1817. Inside the cathedral, look for the 12 pillars dedicated to the memory of the thousands of people who disappeared during the violence of the country’s internal armed conflict, which lasted from 1960 to 1996. With our international travel planner, Guatemala City attractions like Catedral Metropolitana can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Me pareció el edifico más bonito de los que están en el Centro Histórico. En el centro hay un edificio al fondo, muy maltratado, pero te pones del otro lado para la foto y ya.Found me the building most beautiful of which are in the historic centre. In the Center is a building in the background, very damaged, but you get the other side to the photo and that's it.show original
Large and impressive with with a vaulted ceiling. Not overly ornate. Many old paintings were hung on the walls.
A beautiful experience with the Spanish Colonial building in the historical district of Guatemala highly recommend

Luis LeivaIts structure is very beautiful and for Mexicans who come to insult I ask you respect since we're not insulting their cathedrals that there are very nice but others not so, although the facade is simple is also a beauty since it is simply beautiful and although it look small in reality is huge at the sides of the Church itself and under it also.show original
