Cathedral of Oaxaca, Oaxaca
(3.9/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • No apparent strength. Visit the SoCal location on the long side, but ... As long as it came up here a little bit more santo domingo de guzman, go see de temple would seem to be compared to.
