  • That is what I like in contemporary architecture, that can really surprise. To the Cathedral we go the main route among equally planted palm trees. Its strange the roof we can see more and more clearly. We reach the place and what is it!?! Shows a Man a big blank square and very raw. Concrete thickness cast and visible traces of formworks. But this Chair as coconut and is in its interior lies the best. We go so. It is quite populated with modlącymi people seated in the numerous benches. We sit next to them and raise the head to the top. This is the moment! Now we know why are these bubble. Falls to the center of the light but they work as lamp shades and scatter them evenly throughout the Church. Lighting up every corner. But the heavy mór and the lack of Windows fully here yet another role in conjunction with the domes. With this solution is not directly in the middle of the incident light, and this plus the big door cause that even at the height of the air is crisp (like coconut milk). Hooray! The icing on the cake is globular aisle. Not to describe. See yourself! Masterpiece!

  • Beautiful!!! We loved it . Nice and very clean. we could not stay as much as we would have liked because they had other activities  more »
  • It replaces the old Metropolitan Cathedral destroyed and in process of recovery after the earthquake of 72. It is wide, bright, sober, with curious Confessionals and very beautiful picture, surrounded by gardens. It was inaugurated in 1993, twenty years after the Quake and designed by the Mexican architect Lajarreta.

  • Beautiful place!! Have to visir!
  • This example of postmodern architecture emerged in 1994 in a mainly Catholic country that had spent more than two decades without a building for a cathedral, since an earthquake disabled the previous Cathedral that is still standing in the old Center of Managua.
