The cathedral is beautiful. We stopped in to take some photos and came across a christening. In fact, they were christening a number of people of all ages, from baby to senior citizens. It was quite moving and interesting to watch.

Despite the exterior's larger scale the interior of the cathedral is small and intimate. Really lovely.

It's worth a look if you are passing by, but it's nothing special so don't go out of your way to see it.

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.

I'm fascinated by the devotion to churches and cathedrals in Mexico. Their devotion to living a blessed life is beautiful. The detail in all Mexican churches shows their love so I can never say enough good about visiting any Cathedral in Mexico

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
