Catedral Metropolitana Maria Reina de Barranquilla, Barranquilla

#1 of 16 in Historic Sites in Barranquilla
Church · Tourist Spot
The simple and modern facade of Catedral Metropolitana Maria Reina de Barranquilla, with its harsh angular lines, conceals a world of color that streams throughout the interior of this 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.
