SANTIAGO | Catedral Metropolitana is the seat of the Archbishop of Santiago de Chile, and the center of the archdiocese of Santiago de Chile. It is dedicated to the Assumption of Mary into Heaven. The neoclassical cathedral was completed in 1800 with further alterations made at the end of the 19th century. It’s one one of several historic buildings in Santiago’s Plaza de Armas.

Several cathedrals have stood on this piece of land over the centuries. The first was built in the early 1600s but destroyed by an earthquake in 1647. After several more earthquakes and destruction, the entire old cathedral was scrapped and the current one built.

Walk inside and you’re greeted with a beautiful, peaceful scene that seems a world away from the hustle and bustle outside. Ornate frescos on the ceiling, gilded columns, and thousands of black and white floor tiles make for a spectacular Tuscan and Roman inspired interior.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
