A very beautiful Cathedral in Old Mazatlán. Very close to the bus terminal and market. For 10 peso we hopped on a bus from the resort and spent the day shopping and site seeing in this area.

When we first started going to Mazatlan, this was still a cathedral, and in great need of repair. All that restoration is finished, and it has been upgraded to basilica status. Not being a Catholic, I can't explain the difference between a cathedral and a basilica. All I can say is this is a magnificent edifice. Full of art work... More

The architecture and finishing of this building are amazing. It is quite stunning and I’m not Catholic. If you have a chance to visit this place you will enjoy it. It is right next to the square so you can spend a lot of time in the area without needing a taxi.

Got to see this on the "city tour". It was beautiful. Interesting story about how the star of David ended up in each of the windows. Our tour guide let us go in even though there was a funeral going on so I didn't like that. I felt like it was rude to impose on an intimate gathering while they... More

This Cathedral compares nicely to those I've seen in Europe. I find the display on abortion very off-putting.

My friends and I took a city tour and one stop was the Cathedral. When we went in there was a beautiful wedding being preformed. I was very impressed with the folks there just for prayer. Respect was wonderful.

If you are already in Old Mazatlan, the church is worth seeing. I would not make a trip down there just for the church, however. While it is very nice, it is not that old, and does not have anything that special about it. If you are shopping the bazaar it is within walking distance so you might as well... More

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.
