Catedral de Tacna, Tacna

4.3
Admire the impressive facade of Catedral de Tacna, located in the center of Tacna. Construction of the cathedral began in 1875 by the firm of famous French architect and engineer Alexandre Gustave Eiffel, but was postponed in 1879 due to the outbreak of the War of the Pacific. Officially completed in 1954, the cathedral displays a neo-renaissance architectural style, with a tower either side of the grand entrance and many ornamental features on the main facade. Made using stones quarried from nearby hills, the building complements its surroundings, balancing a bold European style with local materials and colors.

  • Imposing building stands out among the rest of the buildings in the Centre. Simple architecture is, however it is a family reunion site. On our visit we have dances of devotion to the Virgen del Carmen.

  • It was wonderful to enter the Cathedral of Tacna and find that the Virgin was exposed on the altar to worship him. I thanked the Lord and prayed for all my friends and family.

Where to stay in Tacna

You'll find the bulk of Tacna's accommodations along the Circunvalacion Sur ring road. Hotels range from mid-priced and comfortable, to more exclusive and luxury options offering lots of facilities and services, including onsite restaurants and bars. Simple guesthouses on primarily residential streets serve as the most popular places to stay for budget-conscious travelers, with a good selection found on the city's side streets. Farther from the city center, look for hotels near the main roads, well positioned for those exploring the region by car.
