This is one of my favorite basilicas. A rather simple exterior, but the massive interior nave is quite spectacular. We went on a weekday and got to go up to the top. If you don't like elevators, this isn't for you; we squeezed 3 people in what seemed like a 1 person elevator. Ha! What fun! Don't miss this beauty in the rough neighborhood! Seriously, it's a little rough. Prostitutes and the like line the corners of what seems like blocks and blocks of religious stores. Wouldn't recommend visiting after dark.

Metropolitan Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception is a Catholic cathedral in the heart of Medellin near the Bolivar Park. It is home of the Archbishop of Medellin. It is built by a French architect in a Latin cross design. Very impressive architecture. Adjacent to the basilica is a small museum but it was not open during our visit..

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.
