Absolutely beautiful interior and exterior, very peaceful. Wonderful examples of the type of churches seen across Mexico - very different than the United States.

The detail this building has is incredible. The whole downtown area is embelishing and magic. This might be one of those places I would consider to go on my honey moon. Sunday mornings in this place are very interesting!

Enjoyed the view at sunset after a rainy day, accompanied by nice climate and colonial architecture, with very nice illumination. A must to visit if in town.

Great church! My kids loved the atmosphere. Be respectful of those who are inside praying. Be mindful of your voice, it may be too loud. Great pictures to take with family.

You always think Oh! No! Not another Cathedral, but one has to look at all these in Mexico. They all have art work, stained glass, but all are different in their own way.

While to each his own, this is another example of control of the people through various means including, but not limited to, draining their collective wallet. That being said, it is a lovely peaceful building that provides a sanctuary for the believers, and non-believers as...More
