The Cathedral of San Isidoro de Holgu ínn is one of the most beautiful temples in Cuba and the greatest of the east north of the island. It is consecrated to San Isidoro, patron saint of the city of Holguin, who was bishop of Sevilla for 37 years and saw six kings pass on the throne; while promoting culture and leading the Church towards progress. So much so, he is regarded as one of the most important theologians and scholars in the history of Christianity. In its early years it was a precarious building, lifted with materials of very poor quality and little durable. She received the blessing of the Church in 1720 and ten years later Holguin’s neighbors knocked it down to build a much more consistent building with muddy walls and ceilings worked on Cuban precious woods. It is consecrated to San Isidoro, patron saint of the city of Holguin This second church consecrated to San Isidoro, served not only for the Christian worship, but also served as a cemetery and archive where the births, marriages and deaths of slackers were recorded for 89 years. However, this temple would also be torn down in the 1810 s to build instead the third and final one that has come to this day. Of this architectural wonder that has signed the city’s urban landscape for 200 years, highlights its Moorish-looking interior and original wooden ceilings and one of the highest examples of the Mudéjar style in the east of the island. Their roofs are labored in Cuban precious woods. The Church of San Isidoro de Holgu ínn was elevated to the dignity of Cathedral by Pope John Paul II in 1979 when the diocese of Holguin was created, ecclesiastical territory that formerly belonged to its counterpart of Santiago de Cuba. ·
