Beautiful cathedral! The artwork and architecture are amazing. The entire area is full of street vendors and shops. Great place to grab a bite and take in the sights. Put on your walking shoes and spend the day in and around Bolivar Park.

Very easy is to reach this place, but is should take precautions, i.e. not go alone and not go at night. The Church has hours to enter and they should be consulted before.

Well, I´ll say it´s nice, but for me seeing another church wasn´t that interesting in Medellin. If you live in Europe or have been in Mexico or Peru, this church won´t be interesting. And the surroundings are somehow scary: beggars, little stores, garbage. The authorities should do a better job cleaning up the park.

The music was phenomenal.
We were just strolling through - the doors were open - and there was a mass going on.
The cantor's voice was wonderful. Before we left, the organ started up... also impressive. The architecture is also beautiful and somewhat simple.
