The catholic Cathedral of Iquitos’s construction began in 1911 after the demolition of the old temple and was inaugurated on March 16, 1919, with the tower being completed in 1924. The Cathedral contains a crypt that is behind the main hall of the Great Hall.

We were in the plaza area anyways and decided to walk in to see. Beautiful ceiling paintings, and quiet place. One of the caretakers went out of his way to ensure we came in so didn't feel like we were intruding at all.

You can see the tower from the plaza, and at night the lights of the tower change colors and at sunset it glows with a warm tone Nice!

Nice to see, particularly at night when lights of the tower are on, as they change colors and with the sunset glow it takes a whole different dimension. Simple, humble, but nice to visit inside
