Iglesia Santa Maria - Catedral de Chiclayo, Chiclayo

4.0
#4 of 13 in Things to do in Chiclayo
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.

  • This beautiful Cathedral is simply and to you see her perfectly beautiful in every sense, because it conveys peace and relief as well as safety and reliability at the moment of joining, is recommended to assist when there are no great influx of people so you can find yourself in communion with God, but if you want to visit with the family on Sunday mornings and evenings are perfect to spend it together.

Where to stay in Chiclayo

The city center, northwest of the airport, provides comfortable rooms in modern hotels located both on side streets and attractive boulevards. A few older establishments, colonial-Spanish in appearance, occupy some of the nicest spots in the downtown area. Consider looking in the residential areas for rental properties and family-run guesthouses--both represent good options for budget-conscious travelers and those on a longer stay.
