Cathedral of San Luis Potosi, San Luis Potosi

4.8
#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in San Luis Potosi
Admire the dramatic pink stone exterior and listen out for the hourly bell ringing at Cathedral of San Luis Potosi. Constructed from 1670 to 1730, it originally featured only the south bell tower; a second, identical tower was added in the 20th century in honor of the centennial of the War of Independence. Take time to admire the dramatic Spanish Baroque facade, featuring a total of 24 statues of the apostles. Step inside to see the late 19th-century neoclassical interior, complete with a gold coffered dome.

  • I went to a wedding at the Cathedral and it looks majestic. It is the things that must not fail to see when go to San Luis Potosí.

  • Great place to learn about history and culture. The tour of the city in the morning offers more complete information in every sense. Afternoon cultural activities are very nice.

  • Very nice Centre for walking and ice cream, restaurants, shops and a kiosk, where an orchestra plays music and couples dance danzón

  • I love its architecture the cover is striking and original as well as beautiful two towers of different materials (cement and quarry) but same design and height inside is admirable its striking cupola that golden and its main Altar is not far behind, is notable for being so different from usual highlights the great mausoleum of the Bishop José Ignacio Montes de Oca and Obregon there is much to admire worse very unpleasant is that inside are boys looking drug addicts asking for money and bothering too much during the visit, which creates insecurity and that you one comes out fast
