We have seen many cathedrals in Mexico and this is not the best, nor the worst but it is a beautiful church, both inside and out. In fact, the outside is very simple but there is a simple elegance inside with its yellow domed arches and white trim. There are two plaques commemorating the founding of La Paz, the city... More

It sits at one side of the town square and is very basic and simple but was worth a 5 minute photo opp and peak inside. Nothing like other Cathedrals you may be thinking of or what you see in Europe but nice local culture.

It's not overly fancy, but it is sincere and soulful - very locally spiritual. Worth a few minutes to get there and a quiet, meditative visit.

This cathedral is small and fairly plain compared to other cathedrals I have seen. It is lovely, none the less. The statues and decor in Catholic churches are always interesting to me. The square in front of the church is nice as well. There are benches and it serves as a community gathering place.

Not the most ornate or impressive church in Mexico by far ... but OK for a quick look. There are more interesting things to see in La Paz.

Beautiful to see. It is a must if you are in LaPaz. So much history. I have to admit. I have been to Europe and have seen some amazing churches.This is probably a sanctuary for the people of Mexico as a community.

Pretty stained glass windows, small and intimate. There was a lovely tiny chapel with individuals praying. The altar had flowers very pretty well maintained. Close to shopping and city building
