Fodor's Expert Review Catedral Metropolitana

Porto Alegre Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Although its construction began in 1921, this cathedral wasn't fully completed until 1986. Its predominant style is Italian Renaissance, but note the twin bell towers, which were inspired by 17th-century Jesuit missions. The facade's mosaic panels were made in the Vatican ateliers.
