Iglesia de Santa Teresa, Caracas

(4.3/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
In the heart of the downtown area stands Iglesia de Santa Teresa, a combination of two churches united by a dome. Construction on the Catholic church began in 1877 and was completed in 1881. Built in the neoclassical style, the church went on to be declared a national historic landmark in 1959. The west facing facade is dedicated to Saint Ana while the east facing is dedicated to Saint Teresa. Step inside the grand church for a closer look at its interior ornate decoration, statues, and stained-glass windows.

  • The Basilica of Santa Ana and Santa Teresa is one of the Catholic churches of most beautiful architecture that includes the city of Caracas. It is a point of peace and meeting with God in the mere Centre of the busy and congested Capital of Venezuela. Located very near other beautiful buildings as theatres: national and Municipal de Caracas. The Church of Santa Teresa has one of its ships to one of the most revered religious images of the country such as: El Nazareno de San Pablo... Definitely, no matter the time of day, if you want to pause of interior recollection, this church is the best!

  • Beautiful temple which are actually two. Two temples, the story is that Guzmán Blanco built two adjoining temples instead of the Temple of San Pablo, which was demolished to build the theatre, which is now known as Teatro Municipal. Both temples are Santa Ana, and Santa Teresa. That is from the historical point of view. Already the legend says that El Nazareno de San Pablo appeared in dreams to Guzman him claiming that he had left her without Temple. Scared Guzman immediately ordered the construction of two temples together so the Nazarene had its place, but called Santa Ana and Santa Teresa, in honor to his spouse Ana Teresa.
