Immaculate Conception Cathedral
I got the following description from a website called Bestday.com: "The Cathedral is located in the very heart of downtown Mazatlan; its construction began in 1875 and was finished in 1899, and it was dedicated to Mary's Immaculate Conception in 1937. It is considered the most beautiful cathedral in the northwest of Mexico; featuring magnificent sculptures in its atrium. The building has a remarkable Gothic style, and its decoration is mainly Baroque with a neoclassical feel, thus featuring a variety of styles. When you visit the cathedral you will be surprised at its many works of art, which include not only magnificent sculptures but also inspiring paintings. Hopefully you will be able to listen to the wonderful organ of the cathedral, which was built in Paris in the 19th century." A good photo for domingo, isn't it?
