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.

  • The Cathedral is a large, imposing and beautiful. Much talk about that it is old, but it is very new, less than 100 years, but to locals it is old. Since the Church begins the Civic Tour

  • Cathedrals in Peru are wonderful and this is clearly no exception, I recommend it for people that admire the religious art

  • In the Southern Cone, it is not easy to find colonial buildings in good condition. This is one of them. The exterior is very beautiful and the interior not unlike so many churches that built the Spanish in Latin America. However, it is a landmark of the city.
