the coffered ceiling is supposed to be the hot thing about this cathedral. I found it disproportionate and too low for the arches. Maybe it is just me.

It seems that there is a church every stone's throw away from each other in every large city in South America. This cathedral was interesting but the only uniqueness is indeed that they used quite a lot of bricks to build it. We got off at prado station of the metro, and walked over. Besides the plaza Bolivar there wasn/t much else in thevicinity so we walked back to the plaza berio stop, where we spent quite some time enjoying the incredible busyness of the people.

We had high hopes for visiting the Cathedral in Medellin. We took the modern and efficient metro to the nearest stop, Prado,which according to our map was only four blocks away. However, the side streets leading from the main boulevard to Parque Bolivar were full of prostitutes and drug addicts. After trying to brave it and look past it all, we gave up and turned back after one block.

I was just in Cali, Medellin, Cartagena, Barranquilla and Bogota. Of all of them Medellin is wonderful. Great weather year around, easy to get around except during a rush hour then a bit slow. Great Taxis service and cheap. Great Malls and shopping, Safe and beautiful mountains.
