Fodor's Review

This is one of Mexico's finest interpretations of baroque style. It has three facades—the principal one dedicated to the Eucharist is best viewed from 2 to 6 pm, when the afternoon sun lights up the deeply sculpted reliefs. Inside, the 20-ton main altarpiece is bathed in 24-karat gold and has statues of 11 important saints, including the Virgin of the Assumption, to whom the cathedral is dedicated. It was completed in 2010, to replace more sober, neoclassical altar decorations that in the 19th century were installed to replace the original baroque altar.
