About
Though construction of the Cathedral began in the early nineteenth century, it was delayed by two earthquakes, the War of Independence, and internal political conflicts. Work was finally completed in 1958, and the Cathedral stands today as a symbol of Merida and its history.

I would perversely say that this is a bit of Gaudi in Merida - the facade looks just a little like these in Barcelona :)

The cathedral is not by itself a maste piece of architecture, however, in the context of the city it is part of the pieces that make merida one of the most interesting city in Venezuela.

Beautiful catolic church with a great atmosphere.
In the middle of Merida in Mexico and worth a visit. Beautiful art inside the Catedral :)

If you are passing, then why not drop in to take a look inside. But it really would not be worth a special journey to get here.

Amongst thousands of other Catholic Cathedrals across the world, this one has nothing to make it stand out, and months later any memory of it will have faded

So drop in if you are passing

Located across the plaza Bolivar, This cathedral has several historic style mix into one. Overall, it's one of the most beautiful cathedral I've been in the world, and it has to be the prettiest cathedral in Venezuela.

This church is simply amazing and deserves a visit. It is one of the nicest churches we visited in all of South America. It was designed based on another church in Spain, and it lacks nothing in its sense of grandeur. Truly beautiful.

It's a so peaceful place, ideal for praying or being in silence with yourself. Rounded by beautiful art and majestic architecture of the temple. You can feel the holiness of the place bein there.

The cathedral is located in the center of the city in Plaza Bolivar. The Spanish style cathedral is gorgeous. The paintings, statues, and architecture are worth your time, and there is also a crypt located under the alter containing the tomb of a famous deceased bishop from Merida. Go check it out!
