I've seen some fine cathedrals in many countries in my day, but this one has to be one of the most impressive. It's probably best to visit it when there is no mass or other event happening because you'll want to take your time to walk around freely to view and inspect all that it has to offer.

Guadalajara cultural centre is just beautiful. During 30 minutes walk you can see so many stunning buildings. Magnificent. Do not miss this! Cathedral was amazing, inside was even more breathtaking.

Ok, I am prejudiced....but this is the best looking church in all of Mexico. We even have mummified remains and local Indians selling their crafts on the steps. What more could you want? The Cathedral opens onto 4 different Plazas, all equally beautiful. This is a great place for pictures, but do not disturb during mass. PLEASE do not wear... More

It is one on of the major attraction of Guadalajara. A nice building with lots of old word charm and a pleasant Plaza with fountains in front.

The Cathedral in Centro is magnificent and very well maintained. There is a constant flow of worshippers who come in to reflect and pray. It is a most solemn and worthwhile place to visit.

This was breath taking. Visit earlier in the day to skip the crowds. Despite the construction we still had an amazing view, only the side entrance was open for access.

Thie magnifient church shows both sides of catholic faith, the people who belives in God and the good priest who fought agianst the evil, but it shows in a monstrocity level, the corruption and the opulence of this place, beggars are outside, so low life thiefs too, so keep your eyes on you belonging all the time
