A nice place to visit in Mazatlan. It was a holy day and my family did not want to go into the church but we have on previous trips and I think it is important to at less walk in the back to see the beautiful interior. Take of your hat when you enter and keep the chatter down

I visited the cathedral for Ash Wednesday mass. I was told the crowds would be knee deep to get their ashes. Surprisingly it was well organized. Lines moved quick and the mass was an experienced I will cherish forever. It's a must visit.

It's a lovely cathedral representative of many in colonial Mexico with an interesting detail. If you look, from the inside or out, along the roof line you will see a row of stained glass windows in the design of the Star of Davide. Reportedly the only such example in Latin America.

Our trip to the cathedral was part of our Mazatlan tour and it was absolutely beautiful. The history in the buildings down in old mazatan is incredible!

Beautiful artwork, and I appreciated the respect given to such a place from people (even non-Catholics) worldwide.

We've been visiting Mazatlan for eight years and we always visit the Cathedral. They've done some maintenance work and it's more beautiful than ever. If you plan to visit don't wear cut offs. They're not allowed in the Cathedral nor are cameras. You can turn the volume off on your phone and take photos that way.

A stunning large cathedral located in the heart of Mazatlán. It is very impressive with its high twin towers. The Cathedral, in its complex, is a building that contains elements that make it look majestic; its architectonic design and its ornamental details are unique and of indisputable quality.

The first thing you will see is the beauty. If you stay long enough, you will see the deferred maintenance. Throw a few coins in the box do help them out, won't you? Reminder: please take off your hats and don't disturb the people praying inside. This truly is their local church.
