Santiago of Managua Cathedral, Managua

4.1
Explore the historic ruins of Santiago of Managua Cathedral, an important historical monument for the city. The cathedral survived several earthquakes since construction began in 1928. However, it was the disastrous 1972 Nicaragua earthquake that led to the building’s closure. Many thought the structure to be damaged beyond repair, but in recent years plans for the renovation and reopening of the site have begun. Although you can't enter the cathedral, its exterior makes an impressive sight. Created by Pablo Dambach, the building was not only designed in Belgium, but parts were actually constructed there and then shipped to Managua. Look up to the two intact towers, said to represent San Pedro and San Pablo, supported from the central structure by Christ.
