“Good for a Few Photo Opps”
Review of Plaza San Nicolas

Plaza San Nicolas
Reviewed 1 November 2012

The plaza is anchored by the Catedral de San Nicolas, which is a beautifully restored church. It is not open, however, so you can only take pictures of the outside. Surrounding the catedral, are a public market on two sides and small shops on the other two. It's good for a quick stop, but if you've seen a public market anywhere else in Colombia, this is no different.

This is one of the first churches built in Barranquilla and one of the oldest. Is in the center of downtown Barranquilla and has lots of stories to tell. Its architechture is fantastic and the square in front makes you remind of the old 1920's Barranquilla city.

Church San Nicolas is the old city of Barranquilla. It was recently restored and the Plaza was recovered from street vendors. It is a beautiful place to visit on the afternoons when the sun is not so hot, buy flowers, books and fruits. It is not recommended to go after dark. Church is not always opened.
