This cathedral is an emblematic place, you may have to take your time looking at, all of the details make this place an import part of the Baroque time on Mexico, you totally need to go there to feel the magic and don't forget to past by at night time the city lights make this place look like gold.

You just cant miss the Cathedral, especially the outside architecture, al the stone cravings. It is the landmark of the city, the inside is more plain, big spaces and has a new altar. you cant miss it because it is right at the center of the town

Impressive Cathedral in the heart of Zacatecas! It is nice to walk by and admire the facade and the tours around the city will tell you even more. There was a big wedding going on when we were there and it was nice to watch.

Impressive arquitecture, take the guided tour so you can see most of it. Take a good camera. There is a small plaza to the right of the hotel that has different types of "shows" in the evenings - very entertaining.

It is amazing how between the small streets this building pops out and unveils its greatness. A interesting place to admire culture and history at once.

On the main street, you will definitely walk by it. It's exterior is stunning with detailed stone carving and the backdrop of the mountain. The interior is beautiful but rather basic as far as cathedrals go (this is typical of Mexico). This is only a 15 mins stop but well worth it!

We loved the architecture and color of the cantera. The inside was full of detailed carvings everywhere you turned the floor is still old school and the altar is super embellished.

kind of, but the exterior is so intricate it is worth a stop. The pink sandstone detail is incredible and it's in a well-traveled part of town. The interior is much harsher on the eyes, but unique in its own way. There is daily mass both in the morning and evening if you are so inclined.
