Hearing that this was the most decorated church in Mexico my expectations were high... and not high enough! The meticulous details overlayed in gold puts this on par for the nicest cathedrals in Europe.

This is the plaza where wedding celebrations take place, just outside the church, all weekend. There are bands, traditional dancers and happy people. Lots of fun to watch

Went into this seemingly trivial looking cathedral to be astounded by the elaborate and intricate detailing. Well worth a look inside.
