I have been to many Catholic churches in Latin America and Europe. This church was ok but not nearly as old or ornate as others I have visited.

This is a very beautiful building with incredible architecture. There is a very sacred feeling about this place. It's free to go in when it's open, but just be respectful that everyone there isn't just touring the place.

This visit was part of the Old City Tour in Mazatlan. This was a beautiful cathedral with so much history! The part that I found most amazing was the there was a Star of David at the top of each stained glass window in honor of the Jewish community that helped them to complete the construction of the cathedral when...

A visit to cathedral while you are visiting Mazatlan is very important. It is very beautiful and has recently been newly renovated. It is located downtown Mazatlan and we'll worth the time to visit.

easy to get to via bus for less than a dollar. Pretty cool church. I mean it's nothing compared to the churches in Europe...but for Mexico it's pretty swell. Went in with my wife said our prayers and left. Ornate decorations. open most of the day.

Absolutely stunning. We attended a wedding in this church and it was a first for us in a Catholic Church. It is so beautifully maintained and i would recommend any visitor to Mazatlan to visit it.

We stopped here as part of a cruise excursion. This is the most beautiful church I've ever been to. I did not expect it given the area is not a rich city. It has high ceilings, beautiful arches, chandeliers. Our tour guide said something about gold decorations. It's a must see if you're in Mazatlan.

Take the tour, see this beautiful Cathedral and Mass. I am not Catholic, but this is a piece of Art and History. The waking tour of the city is rich with history, music and fun....don't miss it.

The first time we were in Mazatlan the Cathedral had a lot of scafolding around it but this time it was all gone and it is beautiful. We got to attend Mass twice - what a blessing. Very well preserved and will keep coming back again and again

The inside was ornate but humbly set gray backgrounds of marble and stone. Well kept and pious nature of all who entered.
