Catedral de San Servasio, Valladolid

3.9
Head to Catedral de San Servasio and take in the grand 16th- and 18th-century architecture. The church was first built in 1545 and was partially demolished, before being restored during the early 1700s. It features two tall towers that loom large over the adjacent town square. In the middle of the facade, find a stone-carved shield with a white sparrow, and just above, you can see a 19th-century clock. Inside, tall arches support the domed interior. The building takes up a total surface area of 6,658 sq m (71,666 sq ft). To plan Valladolid vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • The Iglesia de San Gervasio (or Servacio) is opposite the square is the main town. Begun in 1543. It is a tourist spot. Is more beautiful at night when it is illuminated.

  • Located right across from the main little city square is this old cathedral. Its not as big and ornate as European cathedrals - but its charm is in its simplicity. On the outside it is a bit drab...bu...  more »
  • I think that pretty much all colonial churches look alike in one way or another. Especially here in San Servasio (or Gervaise) you notice the huge empty space (IE not decorated like it does from us to Europe) because it's a big structure. to stay back for the time of prayer for a taste of typical atmosphere, but don't expect St. Peter!

  • This is a nice cathedral. It has an interesting history because it was built by the Mayans who once lived here using the stones from their own temples. The city, though a major tourist stop for people on their way to Chichen Itza, is still old Mexico and is a good place to rest along the way and enjoy un paleto ice cream.
  • This is an old church, it has some small statues of old Spanish saints. The church is not in its best conditions but it is still in use.
  • The oldest Catholic church in all of Latin America. Very nice
  • Nice exterior, simple interior (no wall paintings). Cannot be compared to european churches. Outside a lot of beggers.
  • One of the most ancient catholic churches in Mexico. It's nice to see from outside. Inside you may find it a little bit creepy, or without charme. Anyway, this church, and its little town, it's a must see place if you wanna see a bit of "real Mexico", and not just the rich & touristic East side coast.
