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!

La Paz Cathedral is a small gem in downtown La Paz. Beautifully decorated and serene, it's a restful place and well worth a visit. Peaceful atmosphere and a long history, nicely explained in the entry signs in both Spanish and English.

The building is not fancy but it is amazing; I was able to find something new in the structure every time I looked at it. The inside is great--a house of worship, plain and simple, but with heartfelt stained glass and altars that evoked deep feelings in us. The church is a real happening place--we witnessed concerts, masses, and a... More

It is small, and there is nothing interesting inside. Nicer things you can find outside. Few good restaurants and markets.
