Trip Planner: South America / Colombia / Atlantico Department / Barranquilla / Catedral Metropolitana Maria Reina
The simple and modern facade of Catedral Metropolitana Maria Reina, with it's harsh angular lines, conceals a world of color that streams throughout the interior of this 1955 Catholic cathedral. The church's construction took over 27 years to complete, designed in celebration of the Colombian-Caribbean religious heritage. What goes unnoticed from the exterior are the hundreds of stained-glass windows that illuminate the vast interior. Renowned Colombian sculptor Rodrigo Arenas Betancourt created the impressive sculpture of Christ that hangs from the ceiling, above the marble grand altar.

Enter from the side on Carrera 45 or from the back. Stained glass masterpiece. Calm. Serene. Open air at the top in the front and back. NOT TO BE MISSED!
