An absolutely beautiful Cathedral, even the side altars were built with such attention to detail. We sat at the back of the church for quite a while just admiring the architecture. Lots of street vendors selling food and juices surround the Cathedral and there are also many other amazing historical buildings in the area. Highly recommend taking one of the... More

We booked a City Tour and our guide took us all over this beautiful city. We witnessed the 2 bell ringers (and took a movie) just before 12 Mass on Sunday, where the Cardinal was attending.

The Guadalajara Cathedral (with a minor basilica in the back) is located in Historic Downtown Guadalajara, and it was built on 1541 with neo-gothic bell towers. The Cathedral has relics (incorruptibles) of Saint Innocent as well as the remains of three cardinals and several other former bishops of the diocese,

A colorful walk to the cathedral. You will have an opportunity to purchase many souvenirs or clothing as you make your way to cathedral. You also will have an opportunity to find some excellent restaurants.
