Catedral Diocesana, Zipaquira

Located in the historical center of Zipaquira, Catedral Diocesana dominates the landscape with its two bell towers. Construction of the neoclassical cathedral began in 1805 and took a full 111 years to complete. Stand in the adjacent square and snap a few photos of the stately exterior, then step inside to see the stone and brick interior, contrasted with the wooden pews. Two rows of massive pillars support an arched roof all the way down to the altar. Though mostly illuminated artificially, some small windows on the side walls also provide lighting.

  • Do not pass this church by without taking a look inside. Ours was a whistle stop as a service was about to start. A unique building.  more »
  • We stopped in this square on the way to the salt cathedral. There were many restaurants, shops, and locals just hanging around. It was a great stop to get a quick view of daily life in a smaller city....  more »
  • The Cathedral was being repaired as we visited so I wasn't able to see inside but the link between this and the Catedral de Sal was great.
  • Genial
