An iconic Barquisimeto landmark, Catedral de Barquisimeto represents one of the most modern and unusual-looking cathedrals in Latin America. With its exterior arch in the shape of an upside-down flower, the Catholic church is considered an expression of modern art. Its construction in 1968 involved highly advanced engineering for the time; architect Jahn Bergkamp created the design, in what was his first-ever project. Enter to see the light-filled interior topped by the curved glass-and-steel roof.

  • It is one of the icons of our city that no visitor should stop visiting. With a state-of-the-art architecting only that our authorities must give it maintenance since in their areas it is noticeable. Widely recommended.
