Take time to admire the dramatic Spanish Baroque facade, featuring a total of 24 statues of the apostles.

  • Wow! Loved the façade especially of this colonial gem.
  • Great city to visit and have a great time. They have great sites and the hotel's they have are pretty good. Just choose the ones close to the Catedral.
  • 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
