Catedral Metropolitana de Caracas reviews
Beautiful cathedral in the center of city, directly in front of the Bolívar's place. Architecture is similar but not so majestic as European cathedrals. more »
It's a beautiful cathedral that looks out of place in the middle of the city. It lacks the majestic enormity of the stone cathedrals in Europe but it's well taken care of. more »
Main church of the city of Caracas. Seat of the archbishop of Caracas. In it are the remains of the archbishops. There is also a chapel of the Bolivar family
Beautiful view has the cathedral of Caracas, it is very important to know a metropolitan cathedral so large. Many Catholic tourists or not go to the Cathedral of Caracas to express themselves in prayer, reflect or just to know. But those who visit this metropolitan Cathedral get good fluids and good energies.
