Church
Built in 1561 under the orders of Phillip II, the king of Spain, Guadalajara Cathedral remains standing as a beautiful monument to various architectural styles. Due to damage throughout history caused by natural disasters, the cathedral was rebuilt multiple times, including the reconstruction of the dome after a 1875 earthquake. Try to identify gothic, baroque, moorish, and neoclassical styles on the structure. The interior features Gothic-style decor with high-reaching ceilings and large columns. Consider attending a church service for an immersive experience. Arrange to visit Guadalajara Cathedral and other attractions in Guadalajara using our Guadalajara vacation trip planner.
