“Like one of the grand cathedrals of Europe!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Awsome high ceilings, breathtaking art and statues. The gold leaf and stained glass window of the Last Supper in back of the high main altar are stunning. Unknown to many, there is also a small crypt under the main altar which in open to the public too.

Beautiful, large cathedral with large, vaulted ceilings. All the priests were there for added authenticity.

“Great, but not that much”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

The towers and the catacumbs are the most interesting things I enjoyed. But as a religious place, it's a must to visit.

“Mass in Guadalajara”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

When the bells rolled at ten to noon, the four of us found ourselves inside a beautiful cathedral sharing mass with a full house.
It was neat to see the youngvlads in the belfry doing a great job on the bells after the aervice.
