We were not able to fully visit the cathedral as there was a service ongoing. However, our limited view did display a fine old cathedral as is found in many larger Mexican cities.

The cathedral is very nice and also the Zocalo. You also must have a coffee or drink in Avenida Insurgentes. Lovely street. The best in Durando.

Our visit to the Cathedral was both as tourist and as a wedding guest. The antiquity was without question. A definite stop while visiting Durango.

I'm sure it's "special" for the folks who grew up here, but it's hardly inspiring. If you've been to Europe, then this isn't going to impress you.

Returning to Durango after 50 years, such a thrill. The colonial city is as spectacular as ever, bringing back so many fond memories,,,,🎼La tierra de los alacranes, El Parque Guadiana tienen mil recuerdos🎤❤️ Viva México🎋

This cathedral is active and located near the main plaza in the Historical Zone. Beautiful but similar to most cathedrals of the same age.

A beautiful and wonderfully maintained cathedral. Recommend that anyone interested in colonial churches go see it, as this will give a very good sense of what major churches must have been like back in the day and what they could be like now, with little effort. The parish priest noted that the costs for keeping look this were not much... More
