Catedral de San Cristobal de Las Casas, San Cristobal de las Casas

#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Chiapas
Walk up the hill to admire the artistry and atmosphere of Catedral de San Cristobal de Las Casas, a brightly colored Catholic church and local landmark. First built in 1528, the cathedral features an 18th-century yellow Baroque facade decoratively striped by red features. While plant motifs in the mortar and sculptures in the niches demand close inspection, the coloration of the church looks pleasing from afar, perfectly complementing the hues of the plaza that lies in front of it. Inside, find a number of Baroque artworks, including two altarpieces. Plan my San Cristobal de las Casas trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Wow, you upload the cerrito of San Cristobal through a very peculiar staircase, all kinds of steps, you can upload by the right or the left. You arrive at the temple and find a small, very cozy and quiet Chapel. You know after the ascent, you have your reward. From the top you appreciate all San Cristóbal de las Casas beautiful extent.
