This church is amazing. Is the biggest in the world built with mud brick. If you visit Medellin, you must come and see this Cathedral built at the beginning of the 20th century.

I attended a Sunday mass, and the church is beautiful. The other days of the week that I was in the area at the church was closed to visitors.

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..
