Temple of Saint John the Evangelist

Templo de San Juan Evangelista

There are several colorful buildings downtown, notably the cathedral dedicated to Saint John the Evangelist. It was built in 1966, but its bells are more than 150 years old. This is the only Christian church because the difficulty reaching the area and firmly rooted indigenous spiritual traditions meant there was just a half-hearted attempt at evangelization during colonial times. Just a few steps away is the Municipal Palace (City Hall) and the Torre del Reloj, a clock tower erected at the beginnings of the last century. If you want a better view, head to the Loma de Chapultepec lookout point, a great spot to get panoramic photos.
