Merida and the Andes Sights

Catedral Metropolitana

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Updated 06/22/2011

Fodor's Review

Facing the main square is the embellished baroque facade of the Catedral Metropolitana. Although construction began in 1787, the cathedral wasn't completed until 1958. Its geometric designs make this one of Venezuela's most striking churches. A visit to the plaza for a rest in the shade (with a view of the cathedral, of course) is an absolute must.
