Catedral Metropolitana

Architecture in Porto Alegre

This early 20th-century neoclassical cathedral is a Porto Alegre landmark. It sits atop the hill that divides downtown from a series of prosperous neighborhoods that are clustered around Parque Farroupilha, the city's largest green space. An impressive building with domes, stained glass and colorful mosaics on its facade, it is well worth a pop in.
