Trip Planner: Central America / Guatemala / Guatemala Department / Guatemala City / Catedral Metropolitana
From your first sight of Catedral Metropolitana, you'll be impressed by the striking and majestic facade. Its strength and majesty is not just cosmetic; the building, constructed in baroque and neoclassical styles, has withstood numerous earthquakes over the years. Today it serves as the main church for Guatemala City, having been consecrated in 1817. Inside the cathedral, look for the 12 pillars dedicated to the memory of the thousands of people who disappeared during the violence of the country’s internal armed conflict, which lasted from 1960 to 1996.

Catedral Metropolitana Reviews
We took Uber to walk around Zone 1 of Guatemala City from our hotel (Westin). The Metropolitan Cathedral is in the Central Park. It is a large cathedral but not very decorated. more »
This is a lovely building of worship that is worth some time to visit, contemplate and ponder the meaning of life! Not much chance it could be built today. more »
Great location, full of history, close to other points of interest. The building, altars, structures and art are wonderful.
I just love the architecture, the magnificent carved Statues, peaceful
