Information of Cathedral

Ibarra's Cathedral was rebuilt after the 1868 earthquake, its facade was made of adobe and straw. In 1672, Monsignor Thomas Iturralde, bishop of the city, undertook the task of rebuilding the temple, with the support of Gabriel García Moreno (Civil and Military Chief of the province). The structure that replaces the old church is made of lime and stone carving.

The church has three naves and a mate on the altar. Inside I admired the great nineteenth-century artistic value, the most important figures of the apostles painted by Rafael Troya Rafael and various works of art from the Quito school. Baroque-style bread and decorated with gold.

The cathedral has a romantic or eclectic characteristics, distinguishing the influence of neo-baroque in its design and functionality. Decorated with Gothic arches, mural painting three altarpieces carved in wood on each side of the nave and a chapel with its altar on either side of the cross-shaped plan, has dual sacristy and large columns.

In Ibarra Cathedral lie the remains of the bishops of the Diocese and in the vestry is preserved a sample of the shields of the bishops.

The facade of the cathedral has a horizontal symmetry, highlighting two towers. Opposite the church stands the railing that connects the church with the chapel and the Bishop's Palace.
