The Immaculate Conception Cathedral is beautiful. From the outside it's real impressive when you think of when it was built and how long it took in those times to construct a building of this size let alone one with it's detail but when you walk inside it's even more amazing. The detail is incredible. It's a must see for anyone... More

On my recent trip to Mazatlan, I took my, devout, catholic, mother to the Immaculate Conception Cathedral. I am writing this review using her words on why she called this Basilica, "spectacular". We were both impressed with the architecture of the basilica standing outside the church. The front of the church had a majestic feel with its high arches. But... More

We always tried to attend Mass wherever we travel. And didn't want to miss this opportunity to see the Basilica and attend mass there. It's a beautiful church. And packed at mass time. After mass the priest stayed outside to meet, greet and bless people and religious relics. There are Masses almost every hour on Sundays.

This was a beautiful stop on our city tour. The Cathedral is steeped in history and is a beautiful landmark in the city and even easily identified from our Cruise ship . The Basilica has a wonderful history including the insertion of 28 Star of David designs in the stained glass windows to honour local Jewish people who at one... More

This is a correction to a previous review. Instead of an excellent, I left it at a 1, which it is clearly not. My apologies. We have been coming to Mazatlan for over 30 years. In the past three yearsthe Cathedral has been under a lot of cleaning and repaining. If you go in to visit, be respectful. And as... More

We love great architecture, and this place did not disappoint. You walk in and are immediately impressed with the beauty of the inside of the building. You can light a "digital" candle (modern times right?) and spend a few minutes in solitude. Free to enter.

We were traveling with someone who needs handicap accessibility and we were able to get around this location without too much trouble. The ramps were very steep so it required some extra pushing to get up and down the ramps, but we managed just fine. The cathedral is beautiful and in great condition. The location is across the street from... More

This Cathedral is the most beautiful I have ever been in. If you go with an experienced tour guide you can learn how this amazing Cathedral was planned & built over a century ago. I am Catholic so I am fortunate to know what each area represents. All faiths will relate to this Cathedral. Please remember this is NOT a... More
