Cathedral of San Luis Potosi, San Luis Potosi

(4.8/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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.
  • Histórico e imponente en cuanto arquitectura. Muy bonita catedral.
  • Widely recommended, I love this Cathedral to be a temple as God commands, clean, tidy and breathe peace and harmony. From the tourist point of view, it is a compulsory stopping point.

  • Spectacular! I do not like that they hung posters across, it gives a bad appearance (even case of religious events)
