This is a beautiful church to come and see. There is no admission at all. There is some construction around the building but during the week there was'n't many people in the church. Definitely worth a visit to the church and the area.

Amazing building standing after over 100 years. The surrounding area is well preserved and equally amazing.

Some traffic congestion due to construction over the next year, but very beautiful. Soaring columns and Baroque decorating is well worth seeing.

The cathedral is located at Guadalajara's downtown, surrounded by beautiful historical buildings. It is an amazing building from the XVI century, although it is possible to see the many changes it had after the destruction of some parts due to earthquakes and fires.

The cathedral is beautiful and we happened to visit during mass. Very touching. The square surrounding the cathedral is great for strolling and enjoying the surroundings. The people of Guadalajara are very nice and the local culture is really felt.

This place is great for picture and sight seeing. Note that there are a lot of people here as this is a popular destination. You can easily spend 2 hrs walking around here and checking out historic landmarks. Try coming here around 7pm when the sun is setting for best photos and views.
