Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends,
But is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers.
The mind can never break off from the journey.

Unlike most churches in Mexico this Cathedral with its splendid combination of neo-Gothic, neo-Classical and Moorish architecture shows little sign of Spanish influence. Inside, the cathedral is furnished with an astonishing lush collection of Baroque altars, gold leaf decorated murals, crystal chandeliers (from France installed in 1950), religious sculptures, and an organ specially built in Paris in 1886 by Aristide Cavaille-Coll, considered the best European builder of the 19th century (organ is believed to have been first played in 1899).
