Cathedral, Zacatecas

(4.8/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Admire the blend of indigenous and European elements at Cathedral, a World Heritage Site and Zacatecas landmark. The elaborate 18th-century Roman Catholic church dominates the historical city center and represents the seat of the Zacatecas bishop. Observe the elaborate Churrigueresque Baroque style of the pink stone facade, intricately decorated in a lace-like stucco manner. Inside, a somber interior contrasts the ornate facade; don't miss the 24-carat gold leaf altarpiece.

  • The Cathedral of day is beautiful but at night is majestic, you can see it illuminated. There is safety until 1 am which can walk and take pictures without any problem.

  • Place of architectural dreams, every detail is carefully delineated, their strokes and space allow light to penetrate and you can see the details of the Cathedral.
