Catedral Basilica de Puebla, Puebla

(4.7/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Overlooking the main square in the World Heritage-listed Puebla, Catedral Basilica de Puebla dominates its surroundings. Although construction of this church began as early as 1575, the structure wasn't completely finished until the late 17th century. Admire the imposing structure, known for its two uneven towers, the tallest in Mexico. Boasting a mix of Renaissance and Baroque styles, the church features fourteen lavishly decorated chapels.

  • This cathedral is really something. It is huge and so gorgeous. If you visit Puebla and the city center do not miss this place. You won't regret it.

  • Big, old, regal, majestic, awe-inspiring, even for someone like me who is not religious in the least. Awesome.
  • Very nice place to visit while your in the area. But they will not allow you to take pictures.
  • Really big Cathedral, really cute inside. You can access to a small part next to it which is nice too. One this will be better if they were encline to renovate it outside because it's really dirty.
  • The Most Beautiful Cathedral I have ever Seen. It has the Most Magnificent Octogonal Alter. Sunday Mass began with Awesome Gran Organs. Spectacular to Watch the Large Bells in Towers being rung. Such a Wonderful Experience.
  • Magnificent UNESCO heritage
