“Amazingly beautiful!”

Catedral de Santiago de Saltillo
Ranked #2 of 21 things to do in Saltillo
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 September 2013

The Cathedral is only the first one of about six or seven churches in downtown Saltillo that you must not miss. Right on the main square, across from Government Palace, it has a very important collection of religious works of art that make you feel like you're in somewhere in Europe. Right on the entrance, to the right, you can find an antique copy from the original of Our Lady of Guadalupe, that has been restored, with the history and explanation, that will leave you in awe. The Santo Cristo Chapel is to the left side of the Cathedral, especially important being the patron saint of the city due to the miracles attributed to this image. The cross holds a relic from the Holy Cross. Look for the brochures about the churches and museums in the downtown area. Lots to see and learn!

I used to travel to Saltillo for business. I really enjoyed walking around the town, trying different places to eat. The cathedral is the crowning glory though. I spent lots of time just wandering around, taking pictures, and wondering in amazement at this beautiful monument to Christianity. Worth the trip.

Nice place to visit for families, the main celebration for this chapel is on August the 6th. Fire works are lit and lots of vendors to buy handcrafts

The Chapel is next to the Cathedral, in fact is part of it, and the interiors are bautiful. I would say is the most beautiful church in Saltillo, and it is a "must go" if you are on the area.

it looks like its being restored in some parts but the outside of the cathedral, in my opinion, is the most interesting in northern mexico.
