Catedral Metropolitana, Mexico City
El Cathedral Metropolitana: This is in fact the biggest church of Latin-America. The cathedral is damaged by subsidence, in fact the whole city is build on the soft ground of the Lake of Texoco.
This is a magnificent buildings, The Spanish used bricks and walls from the Aztec temples and pyramids which were located next to the Cathedral (now Temple Mayor).
On the right of the Cathedral, there is the Sagrario Metropolitana, a small parish church, with a beautiful front.
The interior of the Cathedral is also very beautiful. Especially the Altar de los Reyes is certainly a “must see”.
This is the largest Cathedral in Latin America and certainly one of the most impressive. It was begun in 1573 and has grown to occupy a full block off of Zocalo.
This gorgeous cathedral is located just off of Zocalo Square. We had a guided tour from Mario, who was quite a character.
The Cathedral of Mexico City is an amazing monument of Catholicism in America. It dates to the early colonial times in Mexico.
It's one the oldest Cathedrals in the Continent and most of Mexico's history has passed in front of it.
