The Sunday Traveler, along with the trusty cousin tour guide, visited the cathedral in the historic center of Morelia while on a day tour of the town. It is said that it is the only cathedral in Mexico not oriented toward the East, but to the north.
Construction of the cathedral began in 1660 using the local pink stone; the building was completed in 1744; it’s a huge church and considered one of the most beautiful in Mexico.
Stepping in through one of the front doors to at first a small bit of intimacy
And then upon facing the full on church one begins to get a sense of the immensity inside.
At times I was reminded of Notre Dame in Paris
We’ll head back outside for today. The Sunday Traveler will be back next week with part two; I spent probably over an hour in here marveling at the beauty.
