(160 reviews on the web)
Church
An iconic Barquisimeto landmark, Catedral de Barquisimeto represents one of the most modern and unusual-looking cathedrals in Latin America. With its exterior arch in the shape of an upside-down flower, the Catholic church is considered an expression of modern art. Its construction in 1968 involved highly advanced engineering for the time; architect Jahn Bergkamp created the design, in what was his first-ever project. Enter to see the light-filled interior topped by the curved glass-and-steel roof.

  • I went to barquisimeto for a walk, among the itineraries was the visit to the Cathedral, we arrived and she is very cute but it is very neglected. Also, they open at 5. There is no interest in elnturismo

  • Excellent place for walking, jogging, running both in the mornings and in the afternoons, I recommend to visit it even as a ride for the family by the open space where children can play and believers is a good place to meditate and pray.

  • It is a modern Cathedral outside the traditional colonial style that characterizes almost all the churches of the city. It is the culmination of the procession of the Divina Pastora each January 14.
