This large church is a three-nave building, wheretwo identical towers, each 131 feet high, and an impressive dome resembling the ones from Saint Peter's Basilica stand out. The Cathedral took about 100 years to build, since construction was stopped during the war with the Apaches and Comanches and all funds were allotted to the war.
Once inside the Cathedral, you can admire the big altars made of quarry stone and Carrara marble, its spectacularinterior highlighted with Venetian crystal chandeliers, as well as an immense German organ, one of the best of its kind. Worthy of mention is the chapel that houses an image of the Black Christ of Mapimi, which was previously housed in the city's first temple located in this same spot.
