This is a very historical church and it is very active on the weekends. It is located in the heart of the Zocalo square and it is very picturesque!

Large space with many artifacts. Splendid valuable metals and art work. We were there after dark would be more pleasing during the day

We have visited hundreds of Catholic cathedrals in every continent, but none so...., so..., strange. It's not even a big church..., more like a mid size chapel. Disappointedly dirty outside and the surrounding area. Worth a quick stop though...

The best part of visiting the Acapulco Cathedral is the walk through the Zocalo(town square). Stop and enjoy the street vendors. It is all safe.

Lovely seeing the church - still in use - there were baptisms going on the day we passed by. The market in front of the church is worth a look around - felt quite touristy but interesting with some great food and drinks available.
