The stonework and detail are amazing! Worth at walk around both inside and out. It is very interesting to see how the building was added on to and the architecture changed over the years.

Nothing special but I was with friends that wanted to see the church. It is in a bad area of the city with a lot of homeless people in the area

My friends from Saltillo took me on a tour of downtown for shopping & sightseeing. I was truly amazed at the detail in the stonework at the Cathedral de Santiago de Saltillo.

Visited the Catedral on way to shopping/dinner in the area. Church is on par with a lot of the ones I've toured in Europe (Austria, Germany, etc). The outside is very impressive, but it is when you enter the Catedral when you will be even more impressed. A definite must see in Saltillo.

This cathedral in the centro historico is a gem in the heart of saltillo. It is a combination of barroque neoclassic and churriguresq style. Altar of san jose is adorned with silver work. Most distinctive building of Saltillo!

We went there two times because the first time we went it was night time and it was closed so we had to go back the next morning but it was worth it.

You can't miss it if you're downtown. It has beautiful colonial architecture, a must see. The inside is pretty amazing too.

I agree, the outside architecture is something special. It's full of details to admire. A truly piece of art. The inside is simple, let's say it doesn't capture all the beauty from the exterior.

Nice and well preserved church. Nice architecture and stained glass. Many small restaurants nearby. Visit in the morning for best light, in my opinion.
