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.

  • The footprint of a city of Spain, in which I've been many times and considered as a small paradise was present in every corner. I didn't expect to find me so many memories to 10,000 km

  • Not be as describing a church. you could be "imposing" maybe, or majestic, very nice with good sound of the organ and architecture that stands out, of the most beautiful that I know this and the zamora michoacan.

  • This place has various references in its architectural composition, in fact, its towers its dissimilar and its facade does not square but one of its sides. Inside captures the interest of the visitor impressive exposure at the sight.

  • 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
