Attraction details
Type: Religious Sites, Cultural
Owner description: Though construction of the Cathedral began in the early nineteenth century, it was delayed by two earthquakes, the War of Independence, and internal political conflicts. Work was finally completed in 1958, and the Cathedral stands today as a symbol of Merida and its history.

I would perversely say that this is a bit of Gaudi in Merida - the facade looks just a little like these in Barcelona :)

Beautiful catolic church with a great atmosphere. In the middle of Merida in Mexico and worth a visit. Beautiful art inside the Catedral :)

It is one of the main sights of Merida, but it cannot compete with the best European cathedrals in beauty and grandeur
