This enormous construction must be seen, the interior is vast without any column. The stained glass windows are fabulous and all in length leaving a hue in this large inner room, a gigantic sculpture in the back of the magnificent altar.

The cathedral of Barranquilla is big enough, but it does not offer much in mean of architecture or art.

While I find the outside architecture a bit unusual and not that attractive, once you go inside it is really quite artistic and has some of the most awesome glasswork. The lighting in the smaller side auditorium is also impressive and there was a mass going on in there that did not interfere with the main auditorium ambience or quiet... More

In the middle of the city, you will find this huge structure, this is the center of the faith in Barranquilla.

I like the way it was set up at night. The mall is right across it so you could do several things at the same time and stop by the Catedral when you are done at the mall.

Barranquilla its not the most touristic place. But there is a couple of cool things, This catedral doesnt have nothing interesting or unique, but if you are near could be cool to look around and check the building, If you dont go, you wont be skipping something important.

We love this Cathdral, but at first glance it does seem rather cavernous. Gorgeous stained glass windows in front depict the 7- day Creation. Pope John Paul II visited in the 80's and stood on the balcony. There's a small museum inside with items from his visit.
