Taking center stage on Monterrey's Gran Plaza, this historical baroque cathedral took more than 150 years to complete during the 17th century.

As long as you're touring the Macroplaza (as I hope you are if you're visiting here), it's worth stopping into this church. They have some pretty murals and stained glass and the architecture outside is nice to take in as well.

Stop and see the central city cathedral. It is a quick visit and a nice small renovated cathedral. Pope John Paul II stopped here and there is a plaque dedicated to his visit to Monterrey.

The most impressive part of this cathedral is the sculptures. The inside decor is very simple, and has an ornate mural behind the altar. If you’re pressed for time, it’s okay to skip this cathedral. Although beautiful, there are more impressive places to visit in...More

This is a beautiful, mostly simple, cathedral. The facade is the most elaborate part of the architecture. Inside, it is mostly white and plain except for the altar area which has colorful, contemporary murals above. It is a peaceful refuge right off the Macroplaza area....More

Mexican Cathedrals tend to dominate the surrounding area and draw you in, such as the Cathedrals in Mexico City, Toluca, and Morelia. Monterrey's Cathedral is more subdued, but worth a stop if you are in the centro. It is peaceful and well kept, and features...More

The Cathedral Metropolitana de Nuestra Senora de Monterrey stands out on the edge of the Monterrey Macroplaza. It's as beautiful and majestic on the inside as on the exterior.

Located at the Macroplaza area. Big church with a neo classic facade from the end of the 19 Century. A beautiful architecture in its exterior as well as in the interior. At the interior, a colored mural above the altar. A simple altar with detail...More

Free entrance of course. It isn't a big cathedral but it is very nice to sightsee. You can also take a ride along the ciudad vieja. Would be a very good idea to do this visit the same day of parque fundadora and paseo Santa...More

I wouldn't go far out of my way to see this church. It is small but well kept. Worth a look if you see it a few blocks away.

But everyone knows that Monterrey was never very big on investing in religion. If you are looking for really beautiful religious edifices, Zacatecas is a great destination. There you will find many such, in the city and surrounding it.
