This is a beautiful spot to take pictures and very relaxing. The view around it is also beautiful and a nice spot to walk.

The rock formations in this part of the world are wonderful
Mar 2020
As an avid gardener that uses a lot of rock in putting a landscape together, this area makes me want to take home stones! The rock formations are inspirational and all gardeners should try to create "mini" replicas of what you can see here.

As the entire national park the name cathedral is related to the form of the rock. What is surrounded is about stunning! What a lovely day!

Nice reserve
Aug 2019
Although some parts of the rock formation was damaged. However as it is under the good weather, everything looks perfect and nice. Waves crashing into the shore and rocks with chilled weather.

Intersting place to visit
Aug 2019 • Family
Went to this national reserve park, where a local guide took my family in his car. It is an interesting place with desert, fossils, rock formations and beaches and good views. Lunch at the beach side was a highlight. And the food is the best we have managed to find in Paracas.

Part of the National reserve
May 2019 • Family
Its not as grand as a cathedral but you could visit this spot as part of your drive to the National reserve. The drive itself is good and you will come across several great sights.

Beautiful coastal views - Catedral lost its arch
Oct 2018 • Business
The views of the water as well as the panoramic views are amazing. Enjoyable to see the waves crashing on the shore. The Catedral rock would have been more impressive if an earthquake hadn’t hit Peru and crumbled the arch. Worth a stop.

The Catedral, Paracas National Reserve, Peru
May 2018 • Couples
As you travel through the Paracas National Reserve, you will come upon one of the main geomorphological attraction along the Paracas coast... the La Catedral arch (the Cathedral) which was partially destroyed during the 2007 earthquake, but it still remains one of the main attractions of the Reserve.

Just a Rocky Island

When touring Paracas National Park one of the scenic lookouts is La Catedral. With the loss of its arch due to a past earthquake it is nothing special. There are many birds nesting in the cliffs. On the day we visited it was very windy bringing in cold air from over the ocean.

Seaside view, minus the arc
May 2018 • Couples
Impressive rock formation, but not as cathedrally as before the earthquake in 2007 which collapsed the arc. Good views anyway.
