Catedral de Barquisimeto, Barquisimeto

4.5
#1 of 6 in Historic Sites in Central-Western Region
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.

    It is one of the main attractions of the city. Spacious and modern, the temple hosts thousands of filegreses from across the country to celebrate a same faith. My favorite part: the Chapel, which is just behind the main, perfect altar for prayer and meditation.

    Architectural jewel of Barquisimeto. Particular by the visit of the Divina Pastora each January 14. A place magic and espeiritual. P.S. Chino y Nacho made this place much more famous than it was. They recorded their video "You're in my head" there.
