Catedral de Tacna, Tacna

(4.3/5 based on 380+ 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. Make Catedral de Tacna a part of your Tacna vacation plans using our Tacna vacation trip planner.

  • One of the emblematic monuments at the religious level is the Cathedral of Tacna in this Peruvian city. It is a construction that is located in Tacna civic promenade, a few minutes from the main square of the city and the Railway Museum.
