This cathedral is situated fairly close to Centro Civico and a short block from Mitre Ave. It is quite tall and striking, with a high interior (as churches do.) It's right next to the lake and you can see locals and tourists alike hanging out in the park in front of, and behind the church. I will say my favourite... More

The cathedral is quite majestic and is definitely worth a visit if you're in Bariloche. Although build last century it is gothic in style so can be quite deceptive. Beautiful location with views across the lake.

If you are in the town of Bariloche, it is worth taking a look inside the Catedral (Cathedral) It is situated very nicely across from the lake and reminds me of a grand old lady.

The beautifully crafted internal settings and the grand outlook and structure of the cathedral have undoubtedly matched up to its reputation as the landmark of Bariloche.

Before you go up the cableway, check that the next chairlift is operating. If the wind is strong, it is unlikely that it will be running so don't go up. After you get off the chairlift, there is an easy walk to the summit... and what a treat awaits you!

It is nice to stop and visit the cathedral for those interested in history and architecture. If you can go with a local guide you will learn more about the church and the city.

Nothing special (or old) as churches go, but worth a look inside if you're passing by. Set in a nice little park with a view of the lake.

The windows are worth coming to look at in this unrefined space. It will calm your spirit to clear your mind. The view across the lake is also quite lovely. If you are lucky, the Father will let you go to the top of the cathedral for a city view.

Do not miss the stations of the cross! We have seen none better. This cathedral is a gothic church built in the 20th century. Because it has no side chapels along the nave, the height of the church seems to soar. However, the best parts of the church are the carved stations of the cross. These are unpainted and were...

We arrivedin bariloche in full spring, but one day the temperatures went down and we had snow, the day after the sun came out and we went up to the cerro to have fun and enjoy with our kids.... It was a fantastic outing with an extraordinary view.
