Trip Planner: Central America / Guatemala / Guatemala Department / Guatemala City / Catedral Metropolitana
From your first sight of Catedral Metropolitana, you'll be impressed by the striking and majestic facade. Its strength and majesty is not just cosmetic; the building, constructed in baroque and neoclassical styles, has withstood numerous earthquakes over the years. Today it serves as the main church for Guatemala City, having been consecrated in 1817. Inside the cathedral, look for the 12 pillars dedicated to the memory of the thousands of people who disappeared during the violence of the country’s internal armed conflict, which lasted from 1960 to 1996.

Main center of Guatemala City. Has famous Catholic Church and the city hall of the country there.
Beautiful building with great stories, if you are religious this Catholic Cathedral is open for everyone and you can go with you family everyday or enjoy the special events they do every Sunday. Located in the Central Park of Guatemala helps it have a better look of the park. Inside you can fine a lot of religious paints and ceramics showing some of the important histories of the Catholic religion.
