Metropolitan Cathedral of Montevideo



The history of the Metropolitan Catherdral of Montevideo dates back to 1740, when it is inaugurated in its present location. Its first construction was of bricks and tiles with a wooden frame. In November of 1790 the fundamental stone of the new temple is placed. This fact marks the begining of the construction of the initial project of Portuguese architect José Custodio de Saá y Faría, following with the works of Spanish architect Tomás Toribio.  The Temple was consecrated on October 21st, 1804. Despite the remodelling done in the 1860' decade by architect Bernardo Poncini and the important repairs carried out by architects Rafael Ruano and Guillermo de Armas starting in 1941 and lasting 20 years, its structure and general style are still the original ones.  Source: Ministry of Tourism and Sports of Uruguay
