Beautiful cathedral

If you visit Manizales, you have to go to the Cathedral, If I remember well from the tour it's the biggest cathedral in Colombia!, You have to go up to the "Corredor Polaco"

By the view of this Cathedral, you can experience the character of a region. Built on concrete and steel reigns over the downtown of the city with majesty. Inside, you will find a beautyful architecture example of neo gothic dimensions. Yo can have a tour inside that carries you to the cuspid of the main central tower through a breathtaking... More

I strongly recommend doing the tour. After climbling all the way to the top of the cathedral you will be rewarded by 360 degrees view of Manizales!

Large and impressive with beautiful stained glass windows. Overlooks the principal square which is the cultural hub of town wit two exceptional large statues. If considering going to Manizales this is the primary place to see

The tour of this Cathedral is an absolute must. Totally worth the wait (leaves every 15 minutes and gets sold out fast!) and money. They start off with a short video on the history and it is really cool to see the cathedral during different season and lighting. The walk up is very steep and can be scary but it... More

The tour cost 10000 pesos, and started off with a video about the Cathedral with English subtitles. Then we started to walk up to the top. It's a great walk, but could be intimidating for someone who's afraid of heights. We went up slowly, though, and I don't think anyone had difficulty. The view from the top is breathtaking, and...

A beautiful, amazing sight in the middle of the city. A must to visit and if you are fit enough you can climb up to the top and have a panoramic view. Just being in the church is humbling.

It's the third tallest church in Latin America, with more than seventy years of it construction. On top, you can enjoy the entire view of the beautiful Manizales. You must visit it and walk to the Corredor Polaco.

The cathedral has a beautiful external architecture and interior, I strongly recommend a visit. The only difficulty is parking. There are few parking areas in the centre of Manizales.

Don´t pay money to get in. If you absolutely want to get in take a tour to nevado del ruiz with expotours and they will give you an armband that gives you a 50% discount. It is kind of beautifull by night when they light it up, but if you are european as i am and have traveled to just... More
