This is a beautiful, mostly simple, cathedral. The facade is the most elaborate part of the architecture. Inside, it is mostly white and plain except for the altar area which has colorful, contemporary murals above. It is a peaceful refuge right off the Macroplaza area....More

The Cathedral Metropolitana de Nuestra Senora de Monterrey stands out on the edge of the Monterrey Macroplaza. It's as beautiful and majestic on the inside as on the exterior.

I wouldn't go far out of my way to see this church. It is small but well kept. Worth a look if you see it a few blocks away.

But everyone knows that Monterrey was never very big on investing in religion. If you are looking for really beautiful religious edifices, Zacatecas is a great destination. There you will find many such, in the city and surrounding it.

Many visitors do not know that the Cathedral has many crypts, where the bishops of Monterrey who have died during their service for the community are resting. This area is in the semi basement and the entrance is via the Blessed Sacrament chapel.
