Iglesia Santa Maria - Catedral de Chiclayo, Chiclayo
(4/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Chiclayo Cathedral is located in the Centre of the city and is the starting point and reference for it

  • It is a large church, not very old but well-kept, is across from the plaza de armas and is must-see. Eye that can not be entered with shorts!

  • The Cathedral is right downtown, she's very pretty, but the traffic around it is very noisy.
