Create an itinerary including Inmaculada Concepción Cathedral
A fusion of architectural styles, Inmaculada Concepción Cathedral stands as a towering landmark visible from all over town. Constructed over a period of nearly 100 years and finished only in 1975, the cathedral features Romanesque Revival, Baroque, and Neo-Gothic elements. Marvel at its trio of powder-blue domes, covered in imported blue and white glazed tiles, and get a good look at the intricate facade. Head inside to enjoy its vaulted interior lavishly decorated with gold and marble accents. Note that the building's blue domes appear disproportionately small; an architectural flaw required a downsizing of the overly heavy features so as not to collapse the structure.

  • This cathedral is absolutely breathtaking. There is the option to go inside and admire the art within the church. There is also the option to climb to the dome and admire the city from above...

  • THE must do in cuenca. You can get on top of the cathedral through the tower on the right sight. It is cheap, $2 per person for the terrace access, for $6 you can get a tour included the catacombs! The view from terrace is stunning, a 360 degrees of cuenca! The cathedral itself is beautiful, and the inside is nice!
  • Cuenca's main cathedral. The space is huge inside. Recommend to visit. - 2022/09/22
