In the middle of the city, you will find this huge structure, this is the center of the faith in Barranquilla.

I like the way it was set up at night. The mall is right across it so you could do several things at the same time and stop by the Catedral when you are done at the mall.

We love this Cathdral, but at first glance it does seem rather cavernous. Gorgeous stained glass windows in front depict the 7- day Creation. Pope John Paul II visited in the 80's and stood on the balcony. There's a small museum inside with items from...More
