The Cathedral of Santa Marta is famous because somewhere in its building, a small urn with the remains of the Liberator Simón Bolívar was hidden. This urn was delivered to the representatives of the Venezuelan government who came on November 20, 1842, to take the remains of the American hero to Venezuelan soil. As a token of gratitude to the city that generously offered him its land to die, and then kept him in its care for 11 years, 11 months and 3 days, the Venezuelan government gave Santa Marta a spectacular marble statue of Bolivar (located in the eponymous Plaza Bolivar). The Cathedral is also known as the Minor Basilica. It is located at Carrera 5 # 16-30 in the historic center. Te interesará leer ¿Qué hacer en Santa Marta?
