Free entrance of course. It isn't a big cathedral but it is very nice to sightsee. You can also take a ride along the ciudad vieja. Would be a very good idea to do this visit the same day of parque fundadora and paseo Santa Lucía. Not a good idea for a rainy day.

I wouldn't go far out of my way to see this church. It is small but well kept. Worth a look if you see it a few blocks away.

But everyone knows that Monterrey was never very big on investing in religion. If you are looking for really beautiful religious edifices, Zacatecas is a great destination. There you will find many such, in the city and surrounding it.

Many visitors do not know that the Cathedral has many crypts, where the bishops of Monterrey who have died during their service for the community are resting. This area is in the semi basement and the entrance is via the Blessed Sacrament chapel.

I love the Arquitecture and the different signs that melt one on another from centuries back into what today you see on the front even though the stories tell It wasn't finished. The best kept secet is the chapel in it's left side is called El Sagrario de la Catedral, there is where you find the jewels!!!

Close to barrio antiguo, this church must be visited to understand the pride of the people from town, very nice place and open until late at night, always people coming in and out and food available in the close surroundings.

This is a really nice cathedral. It does look really special at night because of the lights around it.

When one thinks of cathedrals in Mexico big and beautiful come to mind. This one, in comparison, was small and almost austere. But I loved it. It is a peaceful place to wander and enjoy after the hustle and bustle of Mexico City. Right in the centre of town. I was very fortunate to get a "private tour". There weren't... More
