no reason not to stop by and poke your head in, but nothing too exciting. The cathedral under construction is also worth a peak, even in its completely unfinished state, just because its so big.

Mexico has many very grand cathedrals. This is not one of them. To get the true flavor of this place, it's necessary to attend a service here and experience the devotion of the parishioners.

I agree with Friar 4 our Cathedral is not impressive by any means whatsoever compared to other Cathedrals in the world. I think the one in Guadalajara is much more impressive. However... take in account WHERE we are, and WHEN it was built, and then you could say it is impressive.We are a land locked peninsula and we are located... More

One needs to walk up a street from where the tour buses let you off, but it's worth the walk. The cathedral is very quaint, and we were able to watch a service take place. The architecture is very pretty, and it's amazing to see how they much they built with just stone. A major stop? No, but if you're... More

Worth a visit. Impressive stone cathedral in this dusty humble Baja Town. Faces the town square. Good energy inside.

This Cathedral was built in the 1800's. It's nice and in use by the locals. If you have seen many Cathedrals, you won't be wowed. It is across from Plaza de la Constitucion, which is also OK. I wouldn't rank these sites as major draws for La Paz.

The La Paz cathedral is worth a visit. Like most Spanish colonial churches in Mexico the architecture alone is worth the visit. Check it out!

A beautiful old Cathedral. Just sit in a pew and feel the serenity wash over you. An absolute must stop by for anyone with a real interest in the history of La Paz.

Worth a pop in to see the chandeliers and the art. The virgin de Guadalupe was very nice. Worth a ten minute stop!
