The main altar is octagonal, with four others oriented to the cardinal directions. The complex consists of fourteen chapels in various styles with numerous artistic works such as the main cupola and the main altar, both decorated by Cristóbal de Villalpando.
The facade is classified as late Baroque in transition to Neoclassical, with Doric and Corinthian columns.
The seating in the choir is made of parquetry of fine woods, onyx and ivory of Moorish design. The two organs were donated by Charles V. In the crypt under the Cathedral, numerous statues of saints and angels made of onyx can be seen.
