CA­TE­DRAL DE SAN PEDRO APÓS­TOL

Honduras Tips - - SAN PEDRO SULA * -

La ca­te­dral no es só­lo un sím­bo­lo de la fe y la de­vo­ción del pue­blo ca­tó­li­co sam­pe­drano, sino tam­bién un ícono de la iden­ti­dad de la ciu­dad. Des­de su cons­truc­ción es tes­ti­go fiel de las ale­grías y las pe­nas, de las lu­chas y los com­pro­mi­sos de un pue­blo que an­he­la una vi­da me­jor. Trein­ta y ocho años de la­bor pa­ra su cons­truc­ción, reúnen la his­to­ria de mi­les de sam­pe­dra­nos The cat­he­dral is not only a sym­bol of faith and de­vo­tion of the Cat­ho­lic Sam­pe­dra­nos, but al­so an icon of the city’s iden­tity. Sin­ce its cons­truc­tion it has been a faith­ful wit­ness to the joys and so­rrows, the strug­gles and com­mit­ments of a peo­ple year­ning for a bet­ter li­fe. The tem­ple mea­su­res 65.50 me­ters from the front door to the apse and the cross­walk, from door to door, mea­su­res 38 me­ters. The so-ca­lled cen­tral park of the city has been a si­lent ob­ser­ver of the his­tory of San Pedro Su­la sin­ce early last cen­tury. It ser­ved as a pla­ce of rest for troops who fought du­ring the ci­vil wars and in the kiosk so­me priests we­re for­ced to ce­le­bra­te Mass whi­le the cons­truc­tion of the pre­sent cat­he­dral was un­der­way. The kiosk is the only ar­chi­tec­tu­ral ele­ment that has re­mai­ned in­tact in the park sin­ce it was built in 1901 by Go­ver­nor Luis Alon­so Ba­raho­na.
