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.

As soon as you get out of the tube, stop Zocalo, you will be amazed by the beauty of the facade of this Cathedral. It's simply breathtaking.
First of all you have to know that the Cathedral is sat atop the former Aztec sacred precinct near the Templo Mayor on the northern side of the Plaza de la Constitution.
One of the most beautiful thing you will see in your life is the organ inside the Cathedral, as we'll as Chapel of the Immaculate Conception and the Chapel of Our Lady of the Agonies of Granada.

La entrada a la Catedral Metropolitana de la Ciudad de México es totalmente gratuita con solo asistir a algunos de los servicios religiosos. Vale la pena echar un ojo en su interior pues esta colmada de arte sacro y retablos de oro que la convierten en una verdadera galería de arte. Si te interesa conocer más de su historia acude al módulo de informes justo en la entrada de la catedral y pregunta por los recorridos guiados que ofrecen para subir al campanario.
