On entering the Cathedral, you can't help but be awed by the beauty and size of the interior. Spectacular!

Tour guide Irene was great. Lots of information on so much history. Wish there had been a brochure to help remember it all.

Happened to be a wedding going on when I went in but it didn't matter as the place is so large, no one noticed me. Not especially attractive from the outside. It was locked sometimes (we went by a few times) which surprised me.

Beautiful, piece of architecture. This is a must see in Old Mazatlan. Sitting quietly in the pews was a wonderful moment. Sitting in the park across from the Cathedral also is peaceful and a great people watching spot

You must stop in and see this amazing cathedral located in downtown Mazatlán. If you want to enjoy the beauty of the craftsmanship that built it, step inside one of the oldest cathedrals in the area and take note of the beauty of the statues, the sculptures and even the walls and ceiling of this amazing place of worship.

very "stuffy" inside. There is a sign that says "no shorts" to attend service. I understand it's a conservative old church but I'm on vacation, wish to still worship and it's hot. PS Jesus wore sandals.

The Cathedral was one of the stops on a City Tour I recently took. A service was going on during our stop (it was Holy Week) so I did not get a chance to look around as much as I would have liked. Interesting history and well worth a visit.

W visited the cathedral again during our most recent trip to Mazatlán, and I must say it gets bigger and prettier each time we visit. We were there during Holy Week (April 1) while services were going on. Both outside and inside were beautiful. Definitely a must-see in downtown Mazatlán. Also don't miss the park across the street with its... More

This is the most fascinating sight in Mazatlán and the centerpiece of old Mazatlán. In front of the remarkable cathedral is a courtyard with ornate benches where people savour the shade and socialise amongst a choir of doves. Vendors of jewelry, handicrafts and shoe shiners have quality stalls around the courtyard but don't approach potential customers but rather wait for... More
