Church Tourist Spot
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. Make Catedral de Tacna a part of your Tacna vacation plans using our Tacna vacation trip planner.

  • It is a very nice construction and what most stressed are the multiple round stained glass windows on all sides, that upon entering the interior of the Church, light and color space.

  • 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.
