Iglesia Santa Maria - Catedral de Chiclayo, Chiclayo

(110 reviews on the web)
Church
Architecture and religion enthusiasts will find plenty to appreciate at Iglesia Santa Maria - Catedral de Chiclayo, an unassuming yet picturesque neoclassical construction in the heart of the city. Designed by famed architect Gustav Eiffel (author of one of the world's most celebrated structures), the building feels worlds away from the grandiose Baroque churches of other Peruvian cities. Though Eiffel's plan dates from 1869, construction dragged on and was completed only in 1939. Admire the facade's clean lines, Doric columns, and three archways; then step inside to admire the carved statue of Christ, stained glass windows, and an altar brought from Germany. Serving as the main center of worship in the city, the cathedral provides a glimpse into local faith and customs.

  • Located in the main square of the city of Chiclayo and one of the most large churches of the North Coast Peru, built in the Republican era and in very good condition, wide and very nice inside.
