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. Plan to see Catedral Metropolitana and other attractions that appeal to you using our Guatemala City trip planner.
