Another impressive church

It's right in the center of the histical center, so you should certainly walk in. And be sure to walk all the way around the interior

It was in front of the hotel so we went. It is a nice preserved place. It has a Franciscan decor, meaning not as churrigueresco as other churches in Mexico, but it was a nice spot to see.

Eye-popping building with majestic architecture. On the edge of a plaza across the street. This is a beautiful church and further up Corregidor is the stop for the tour trolley.

This is a good place to visit. The architecture is impressive. They have started lighting up the church for Xmas already. We did not go inside, but presume that the interior would be quite impressive as well. Do not miss it. The Zocalo is nearby, with many restaurants.

Great church honoring Sait Francis. Beatiful and very well maintained. Nice organ on Sunday services. Worth to visit.

This Cathedral enjoys a prominent location right in the heart of centro Queretaro. From the number of people we saw entering, it seems to be a popular place.

I'm a 31 year old guy and this was the first time I'd walked in and seen a church decorated with such detail and intricacies. Maybe it was because it was the first time, or because it was early evening and starting to quiet down, or because it was my first night ever in a place or town like this;... More

The church is interesting with plenty of statues. It is not as colonial as the other main churches but one can sense its historical importance. RMS

Excellent Cathedral ... right next to the Art Museum in downtown QRO ... It is important for the patron saint but is also a very well kept cathedral ... Good for a quick stop.

Nice old church, with an attached monastery which dates back to the 1500's. Take the tour inside the monastery where the guide (English) will show you the thorn three (thorns in the shape of a cross) and the old ruins; with aqueduct-ed water all around.
