Happened to be a wedding going on when I went in but it didn't matter as the place is so large, no one noticed me. Not especially attractive from the outside. It was locked sometimes (we went by a few times) which surprised me.
Beautiful, piece of architecture. This is a must see in Old Mazatlan. Sitting quietly in the pews was a wonderful moment. Sitting in the park across from the Cathedral also is peaceful and a great people watching spot
You must stop in and see this amazing cathedral located in downtown Mazatlán. If you want to enjoy the beauty of the craftsmanship that built it, step inside one of the oldest cathedrals in the area and take note of the beauty of the statues, the sculptures and even the walls and ceiling of this amazing place of worship.

very "stuffy" inside. There is a sign that says "no shorts" to attend service. I understand it's a conservative old church but I'm on vacation, wish to still worship and it's hot. PS Jesus wore sandals.
The Cathedral was one of the stops on a City Tour I recently took. A service was going on during our stop (it was Holy Week) so I did not get a chance to look around as much as I would have liked. Interesting history and well worth a visit.

We were there during Holy Week (April 1) while services were going on. Both outside and inside were beautiful. Definitely a must-see in downtown Mazatlán. Also don't miss the park across the street with its... 更多

In front of the remarkable cathedral is a courtyard with ornate benches where people savour the shade and socialise amongst a choir of doves. Vendors of jewelry, handicrafts and shoe shiners have quality stalls around the courtyard but don't approach potential customers but rather wait for... 更多
It was easy to find and worth seeing. The scroll work on the walls and the statues are impressive. Take your time and quietly walk through to see everything -- and then walk through one more time because there is plenty you probably missed the first time through.
I have been to so many Cathedral's it's not funny. This was very nice, but would rather spend time out on the beaches and enjoying the lovely weather. Within walking distance from the cruise port and the volunteers all along the way are amazing and very helpful. They have a very big presence of the local travel police, to make... 更多
