La Catedral, Paracas

(170+ reviews on the web)
Lookout Water Body
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.
