Cathedral
Church of San Felipe Neri

The construction of this church, originally dedicated to San Felipe Neri, was initiated in 18th century and concluded in 1805.

It was blessed by Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla and in 1921 became Cathedral.

The stone and volcanic rock facade of this late viceroyalty period construction, as well as unfinished tower and high dome, show free mixing of architectural styles representing 17th, 18th and 19th centuries indicative of the transition from baroque to neoclassical.

The inside is austere and the main alter has noteworthy group of sculptures representing the apostles John, Paul and Santiago crowned by carved wooden Christ on the cross, "el Senor de la Misericordia", from 17th century.
