Metropolitan Cathedral of Chihuahua

Chihuahua’s Cathedral is baroque in style with 3 naves, a central one and two side naves. It also features two cross-shaped transepts, which rise to an octagonal dome. The sides around the dome display images of the four Doctors of the Church.  

The Catedral Metropolitana de Chihuahua is considered the most important baroque-style religious monument in the north of Mexico. 

Construction started in 1725, creating a church dedicated to San Francisco de Assisi and Our Lady of Regla. In 1891, it became a parish church dedicated to the Holy Cross. The Cathedral is in downtown Chihuahua, across from Plaza de Armas main square and the Palacio del Ayuntamiento government building.
