This oldest church in Americas was grand but aging. Exterior it looks dark and aging while inside the decoration is a less impressive with some Baroque facade and large columns.

This church is dazzling in it's architecture, so many elements and features. Visual overload inside and out. Adjacent to the Zocalo, a must see! Not overly crowded for a church of this grandeur and history.

It would be hard to miss the largest and oldest cathedral in Latin America, and luckily if you are near the Zocalo, you won't. It is huge and beautifully executed. The inside has gold touches and large spaces where multiple events can be going on...More

This large church is on the corner of the Zocalo square near one of the Mayan ruins. Worth a quick pop inside to check it out, but I would not spend a huge amount of time doing so.
