Description
A stirring example of the Mexican people's devotion to faith, as well as of the magnificent history of the country, the Metropolitan Cathedral rises above Mexico City in splendor. Construction began ... Read more
in 1573 around the remains of the original church that occupied the site, and continued for over 200 years, finally completed in 1813. Because its progress spanned numerous art movements, it uniquely displays features of the Spanish Renaissance, Neo-Classicism, and Baroque architecture, among others. Walk on a floor of marble through its five aisles, admiring the cathedral's beautiful altars and engravings.

La catedral es una de las construcciones más elegantes en toda la ciudad. Está hecha sobre una zona arqueológica azteca y ahí secciones del suelo en donde todavía se pueden ver. También puedes subir casi hasta el techo de la catedral para una vista bonita, pero para eso sí tienes que pagar un poquito. La entrada general no te cuesta nada y la iglesia es preciosa. La arquitectura gótica es impresionante para todos a quien les guste el arte, y ademas está en una área del centro muy bonita.
