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.

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.
