I have visited Catholic cathedrals in many different countries and this one has to be the most unadorned cathedral I have ever seen. This is not a criticism, just a fact. A short visit of 10 minutes will be enough.

Beautiful old cathedral, not big if compared to older European cathedrals, but it must have been enormous for the population that the peninsula used to have. Great place to visit, bells still ring on the hour, and it's only 2 blocks from the beach and touristy area. Bonus, to the left, as you face the cathedral, go one block and... More

The Cathedral in Central La Paz is a step back to the Old Mexico. Church bells ringing and the structure do reminiscent of hundreds of years ago. A must see for everyone

Not impress of the upkeep and not so historical there's nothing to be surprise like a wow factor.... Very simple less parking and less touristy not unlike the cathedrals in Austria, or European countries.
