La Catedral, Paracas
(3.5/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Once a striking natural bridge over the dramatic coastline, La Catedral sustained damage during a 2007 earthquake. Although the cave and full arch collapsed, what remains of the stone arch still cuts a striking profile along the Paracas National Reserve coast. Take a camera along to capture the avian wildlife that flock to the area, as well as the stunning juxtaposition between the azure waves and jagged yellow stone. Put La Catedral at the forefront of your travel plans using our Paracas vacation route planner.

  • I visit this place twice, one before the earthquake in Pisco and other posterior. It is a natural wonder that has been damaged as a result of the terremto but still manteneindo her beauty.
