#1 of 17 in Historic Sites in Guadalajara
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.

Where to stay in Guadalajara

If you want proximity to historical attractions and convenient access to public transport, you'll be able to find something to suit any budget downtown, with the central thoroughfare of Avenida Juarez offering perhaps the widest range of options. Slightly southwest of the center, the neighborhood of Ciudad del Sol also offers a good selection of budget-friendly options, while in the southeast, Tlaquepaque--formerly a city in its own right--features some fancier hotels in a more relaxed setting.
