Begun in XVIth century it took almost 250 years to complete. It summarizes the colonial's architectural history: Its plan reflects its renaissance beginnings, the nave and 4 aisles (two of them chappel bay-aisles)show the baroque development, and the dome´s lantern and balaustrades evidence its neoclassic completion. The choir has monumental organs.

Address: North Plaza de la Constitucion (El Zocalo) Square

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
