La Catedral, Paracas

(3.7/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • It has a beliisimo viewpoint where you can see all fullness with nature. It is a place that is not close to much, despite that I could see that there are people who arrived by bicycle to the place.

  • I visited the Cathedral on the promenade the national reserve of Paracas in Peru. It's a place with incredible view. A very beautiful view. I didn't like the restaurant recently.

  • This place is perfect for paragliding. It is the perfect combination of desert and sea, with a spectacular view to fly and enjoy the beauty of this place
