Cathedral of Saint Sebastien, Presidente Prudente, São Paulo, Brazil

The Cathedral of Saint Sebastien de Presidente Prudente (municipality in the State of São Paulo, Brazil) is located in front of the square July 9th on the Avenue Coronel José Soares Marconde. The Cathedral was an old dream of the Vicar of Presidente Prudente, José Maria Martínez Sarrión. So, in 1927, he decided to create a commission to collect funds, formed by members of important families at the time: Armelin, Tenorio de Barros, Peretti, Toledo, Franco de Godoy among others.
The plan of the church was done by Francisco Oroz, the construction was realized and interpreted by Francisco Grotto and idealized by Luiz Mesquita. The curious thing is in the design that was in the form of a cross. Work began two years after the commission had been formed. Completed in 1949, the church became the referential point and pride of the city. The work was also done wishing it would become the seat of the diocese, which took place in 1961. It is 558km far away from the capital of the State of São Paulo.
