Iglesia de Santa Teresa, Caracas
(4/5 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!

  • A great experience, an architecture that invades your fiber. Another world of silence within the congested Caracas. Couple minutes find yourself with God

  • Very beautiful architectural structure but is located in a part of the city with some risk.
