Built in 1561 under the orders of Phillip II, the king of Spain, Guadalajara Cathedral remains standing as a beautiful monument to various architectural styles.

Try to identify gothic, baroque, moorish, and neoclassical styles on the structure. The interior features Gothic-style decor with high-reaching ceilings and large columns.

  • It's a one of the biggest and oldest cathedral in Guadalajara. Beautiful construction and historical place. Many shops nearby as well for food and souvenirs. Many nearby places to visit from here. Visited during monsoon season and wedding was going on. As the area goes silent in the evening and less safe, it's better to leave by 7-7.30 pm. Difficult to find cabs in the night. Recommend to visit during the day time.
  • It's just beautiful and stylish. The plazas around are clean and full of monuments. The area is full of good and average restaurants and shopping areas. A must to visit area if you go to Guadalajara
