This cathedral is pretty, but not so fancy as many cathedrals are in Mexico. There are secret tunnels under the cathedral that lead to all the churches in the area, but they are closed off for use now. Worth a quick visit.

A nice building, very similar to many of the churches you can find in Mexico and in Latin America. Worth visit.

Breathtaking! A must see! Full of history in every corner. Loved that we heard a real sermon versus money money like at our church.

Yes, very impressive but surrounded by many other impressive iglesias... It is the hub of El Centro and surrounded by at least three very nice plazas. All in all, part of a must-see of the historic center of Guadaljara.

We were in the church twice during our visit and it is important to see it at different times from the natural lighting perspective. Enjoy the beautiful white interior inside.

This is the must-see attraction in GDL. Awe inspiring to see in person and the inside is just as beautiful. Only CDMX has a more impressive cathedral in the western hemisphere.
