Well ... one can't claim being in Mexico City without seeing Metropolitan Cathedral. It is definitely worth to spend hour or so in this peaceful place ... but come early morning as it gets quite crowded in afternoon. This place is full of history ......More

The church is in the center of the city adjacent to Main square. The church is very beautiful and looks similar to any old church of Europe. Its a very nice way to explore the city in and around the church.

Admission is free. You can take pictures but be respectful if a mass is going on. Of course you'll visit if you're at the Zocalo. The Cathedral includes 14 chapels and is next door to the Sagrario.

Yes, it is sinking. Every year it goes down, down, down... and yet it stands firm. It seems impossible that this behemoth could withstand the centuries, earthquakes and its inevitable sinking into the lake bed that Mexico City occupies. It is the anchor of the...More

As a massive building that was in the making for many centuries at huge expense, it has a grandiloquence of places of high historical value, but the internal decorations are patchy. Some nice corners and chapels, some mediocre ones. Nevertheless worth the visit specially if...More

Sí. Uber es la forma más rápida y segura de moverse por la ciudad. Probablemente encuentre más información en el foro de viajes de la Ciudad de México.
