Cathedral of Oaxaca, Oaxaca

(420+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
Visit one of World Heritage-listed Oaxaca's most striking architectural sites at Cathedral of Oaxaca. Following the first groundbreaking in 1535, the massive cathedral took some 160 years to complete due to earthquake damage. The bold Baroque exterior features locally mined green caldera stone, the same as many other buildings in town. Inside, the neoclassical design includes an altar with a statue of Our Lady of the Assumption, crafted in Italy in the late 19th century, as well as a locally made pipe organ dating from 1711. Put Cathedral of Oaxaca into our Oaxaca family vacation planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Oaxaca.

  • Morning stop in the courtyard, and we were stilled by the beauty of the space. The coffee was superb - rich, creamy top, deep tone with a whisper of cinnamon. Huevos en salsa were a delight and waffles with cream and fruit compote were excellently prepared. Live music drifted in as we relaxed in the bold space of the courtyard. Enjoy!
  • The service was outstanding! We had a late reservation for 10 pm, and the entire staff went above and beyond for us! It was my mom's birthday, they brought out an amazing cake for her and wished her happy birthday. I will be returning!!
  • Very very expansive but so good food and amaizing place in a pacio open to the sky
  • Nice restaurant. Great local food.
  • The food was delicious, there was an option for buffet. The cost was medium. The horchata with melon was delicious
