Catedral de Tacna, Tacna
(4.3/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Since you get, I wanted to visit. It is inevitable to not see it, their presence is essential, in addition it is very well maintained, which makes it even more striking. Similar to many cathedrals in South America is it has a Latin cross plan with neoclassical architectural trends, where its domes on the roof called much attention. To enter, you notice a more modest church in its decoration, so it is done with its architecture takes more relevance. Keep in mind not to go to take pictures while they are in mass, I challenged my (but very politely ☺️)
