With 106 m from the base of the cathedral building, it is the highest cathedral of Colombia from data obtained after the last measurement made in June 2008 where the new cross placed in 1987 are included and the lightning rod. The architectural design was the work of the chief architect of historical monuments in Paris, the Frenchman Julien Polti, and responsible for the construction was the Italian firm Papio Bonarda & Co, formed by Angelo Papio and Gian Carlo Bonarda. It has an area of 2,300 square meters and a capacity of 5,000 people.
It has a majestic canopy (canopy supported by columns) on the main altar, which in Colombia only found two: one in the Cathedral of Manizales and the other in the church of Firavitoba, Boyacá.
