Catedral de Montevideo, Montevideo

The main Roman Catholic church in Montevideo, Catedral de Montevideo is an ornate, European-style building in the heart of the city. A vestige of Spanish colonialism, a brick version of the cathedral was constructed in 1740, with the current Neoclassical structure replacing it soon after in 1790. A plain exterior hides the elegant interior of gold and marble. Inside you'll also find tombs of notable Uruguayan figures, as well as those who fought during the British invasion.

  • It is the Metropolitan Cathedral of Montevideo, where we can find mausoleums of beautiful and beautiful interiors. A curious fact, the Cathedral is not open on Sundays!
