This is one of the most beautiful examples of people from different faiths coming together to create a wonderful house of worship. From what I understand, the people of Mazatlán found themselves in financial hardship when constructing the church.

We took a bus from our hotel down to the Catherdal and it was well worth the trip. We were in awe of the beauty of the interior. We spent a fair amount of time discovering all the details and painting. The history of the building of the Catherdal is fascinating.

We chose to take a van tour after being dropped off from our Princess cruise ship. This was included among several sites. We happened to see a wedding going on and the locals and visitors went on about the place as usual. A very nice visit.

We enjoyed going to the church. It closes at certain times of day. we went at 4 pm and it had just opened so we had the place to ourselves. There are no live candles to light- they are electrical which disappointed one of the kids. But the ambiance is peaceful and warm.

This beautiful cathedral was open during an important holiday for the Mexican people, Day of the Dead. We enjoyed the beautiful interior and took our own personal tour.

Took a tour of the city to learn a bit about the culture and this was one stop. Beautiful church with lots of history. Worth a look. Close to the open market and other shopping.

This massive church is a cathedral by virtue of being seat of the bishop of Sinaloa, and originally also Chihuahua, Sonora and Durango, as it notes over the side entrance. Built in the 1800s, it has low gothic arches down each side and Massive round neo-Romanesque across the center, with tasteful Baroque. The alter is white Italian marble and soars... More

The cathedral was humbling. Also an overwhelming beauty for a cathedral in an area that had many people without a lot of money. They said it took more than 20 years to build and they were diligently working on it when we visited.
