On my second trip to Mazatlan, I was reminded of how beautiful this cathedral is on the inside. There's a gilded, hand-carved baroque triple altar, over which you'll find the city's patron saint, the Virgin of the Immaculate Conception. A shrine to the Virgin of Guadelupe is near the back, and the ceiling has Renaissance domes. Some of the statues inside actually have clothes put on them, something I had never seen before.
The yellow-tiled spires and blue and yellow Moorish motifs on the outside make the cathedral stand out in the Old Town. It was built in the late 1800's on the site of an older Indian temple.
Basílica de la Inmaculada Concepción
Begun in 1875, the Moorish style cathedral took 43 years to build. It has twin blue and gold spires and an ornate gilded triple altar making it architecturally one of Mexico's more unusual churches.
This is a beautiful Church. We were able to walk in and take pictures but remember.......
Respect the people that are there to pray.
These older churches are amazing for their style and colors.
