Catedral Matriz, Montevideo
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Churches, Tourist Spots
The main Roman Catholic church in Montevideo, Catedral Matriz is an ornate, European-style building in the heart of the city. A vestige of Spanish colonialism, a brick version of the cathedral was constructed in 1740, with the current Neoclassical structure replacing it soon after in 1790. A plain exterior hides the elegant interior of gold and marble. Inside you'll also find tombs of notable Uruguayan figures, as well as those who fought during the British invasion.
