This cathedral buildin is located in hte heart of the city and it has a tower that you can walk up to the bells area, the architecture is atractive, maybe not one of the best cathedrals in Mexico, but it is yet atractive.

The Cathedral is only the first one of about six or seven churches in downtown Saltillo that you must not miss. Right on the main square, across from Government Palace, it has a very important collection of religious works of art that make you feel like you're in somewhere in Europe.

I used to travel to Saltillo for business. I really enjoyed walking around the town, trying different places to eat. The cathedral is the crowning glory though.

Nice place to visit for families, the main celebration for this chapel is on August the 6th. Fire works are lit and lots of vendors to buy handcrafts

The Chapel is next to the Cathedral, in fact is part of it, and the interiors are bautiful. I would say is the most beautiful church in Saltillo, and it is a "must go" if you are on the area.

Located on the town square (city park). Beautiful surroundings and local shopping nearby. Local people relaxing on surrounding benches talking and feeding the birds.

A Baroque style church used daily for prayers. It was renovated in later years. The different styles are visible in the extensions. It is open to visitors to walk through and take pictures. It has a small curio shop. It is a bit odd to take pictures when somebody is inside praying.

There are no many place to see in Saltillo, so if you are in business travel, and have free weekend / time, this place might be nice to visit. In case and you are there, try to get up to the roof where you can see the reflection of the in front square through the smallest window crack.
