Although the interior is as impressive as one might come to expect, the outside offered the different look, especially in the sunset light. We took some of the nicest pictures. The next-door chapel is also a nice stop and worth a visit.

I personally do not think that this cathedral is worth going out of your way to see. If you are passing, as surely you must, since it is on the main square, then have a look. The exterior is interestingly painted. The interior is lofty with a nice carved wood ceiling. Otherwise it has not a lot to commend it. As in Santo Domingo, the paintings are in need of restoration.

Was disappointed in this church, mix of all centuries of the Spanish settlement, really does not tie itself to any. Some homage to the Mayan as well.

Beautiful exterior and interior, but best part about the church was the location. On a main walking street and in the square, so it was great for people watching and becoming a part of the current in San cristobal. As well, during December the celebrations for Guadalupe begin, which means in front of the church there are a lot of processions and interesting happenings.
