CATEDRAL DE SAN PEDRO APÓSTOL
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.
