Beautiful cathedral with a lovely park right in front. It’s especially impressive at night with all the lights.

We called in here and it is a beautiful interior albeit a little sparse given the impressive exterior. It is located on the main square and makes a beautiful backdrop to the evening's events in the square.

Beautiful old church. You can walk in and look around. Exterior is excellent for pictures. Right across from the main square and the trolley tours.

A cathedral like you see them more in Mexico but that doesn’t take away that it’s a great building in the middle of this town. In the evening it’s even more nice when the lights go on.

Located in the middle of Centro, this historic building is a must see. Beautiful in the day and evening.

It’s a cute cathedral but definitely better to view in the evening especially when the street is busy with people after 10pm....

This church is well preserved and a testament to the colonial period of this city. If you are in Campeche you should definitely take the 20-30 minutes to explore this cathedral.

Visiting the cathedral near the Plaza Principal is a must-do on your itinerary. There is also a small museum accessible through a courtyard off the side of the cathedral.

Although it seems to be just another cathedrale there are some nice litte places. I liked the cemetery just outside and the bells (one with a hole through it from battles). Checkout the museum as well, worth to have quick look here.

Helpful and friendly museum attendant shared much specific information on the pieces. Of particular interest was the painting of the black Jesus (Not jj Evans version haha)... highly recommend stopping in.
