This is a relatively nice cathedral but it's much more attractive on the outside than on the inside. It's very dark and a little dank inside. If you go up the road to see the spectacular inside of Santo Domingo you'll get a lot of perspective on how overwhelming the cathedral interior is.
We visited the square and church on two occasions while visiting Oaxaca. The building is a great example of old Spanish architecture and there is an adjacent museum and garden to visit.
It is well preserved, the images and all the pictures and religious art is very nice. Overall it is worth the time spent walking inside.

Among dishes offered is suckling pig, which my partner and I split. It was perfectly done, tender and moist and equal to what I have had in Spain. We also had the scallop ceviche in a lemon sauce which... 更多

After visiting a great many cathedrals in the Americas and Europe, we did not find this very impressive. However, the exterior is indeed a work of art, and obviously has been cleaned and restored. As long as you do not have too high hopes, it is worth a visit, when walking around the centre of Oaxaca.
This is the sort of building you sink into and marvel at, the sense of history, the workmanship, the size. Three years ago we happened upon a free organ recital there and were moved beyond belief.
