Cathedral of Chihuahua
+52 614 410 3877
Cathedral of Chihuahua is considered one of the architectural gems of North Mexico for its splendid Baroque structure. It took 100 years to build this 17th-century cathedral due to finances allocated for the war between Apaches and Comanches during that period. The cathedral has an uncanny resemblance to Saint Peter's Basilica with a Latin Cross below the dome. The grand interior boasts altars built with Carrara marble and quarry stones, a German organ and huge Venetian-style crystal chandeliers adorning the ceiling. Though the highlight of the cathedral remains the Black Christ of Mapimi. While here, one can also visit the Sacred Art Museum to know more about the religious art during the 18th Century. All in all, this is a great place to soak in regional history, art and culture.
