  • The architecture is perfect does not know which of the altars is more beautiful. Sit stay and see perfection in his ceiling. You're or not Catholic should stroll to the Cathedral, if you not admire it by religion, la.admiras jewel of art and architecture

  • Words cannot describe this Catedral. Paintings were incredible, organs were the best I've seen. The ceiling made me dizzy with glee. No way not to enjoy or see it if you are in Puebla.  more »

  • 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
