It's a very old church and looks magnificent. Very interesting to see the Spanish design and the art work from Mexico combined together.

This is truly a memorable experience to visit a 400 year old cathedral. It is in the main square of San Luis Potosi where there are additional things to see and places to shop. Don't miss having something to eat at the many restaurants and coffee shops.

If you like marble statues, this is the place in SLP. Lots of statuary inside and out and hold your visual interest. My favorite church in town.

I visited the town center as soon as I arrived. It was close to sunset and all the churches and the local theatre we bustling with the local people enjoying their own city. The churches., especially in the light of day end were absolutely beautiful and very well maintained
