“Mass in Guadalajara”
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.

“Sort of a let down for such a large city in Mexico”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

You should visit this cathedral by all means, but I was not that impressed with its "grandeur". I've seen more magnificent churches and cathedrals in Mexico. But you should include this in your visit to GDL.

“magnificent symbol of guadalajara”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

The twin spires are indeed the symbol of this huge sprawling city. The cathedral complex takes up an entire city block and houses an additional chapel. It is clearly a destination for local pilgrims and is a magnificent home for devout Mexican Catholicism. Sit through a mass if you are able and sense both the holiness of the place, as well as the spiritual devotion of the congregation - this recommendation from a passionate skeptic of organized religion. The late afternoon light (October) on the front of the cathedral complex with its spires and domes offers opportunities for spectacular photography.

“Packed on Sundays. Go on another day.”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

It was too full of people to be able to see it filly when we went there on Sunday afternoon. It was a standard cathedral; pretty to see, but you've seen a lot like it. It's in the historic core, so take 10 minutes to walk through it when you're there.
