Cathedral of Tepic

Tepic

This cathedral is the symbol of excellence of Tepic. Located in the downtown area, its construction began in 1804 and was completed by the end of the 19th century. It is a little different from the other viceroyalty cathedrals in terms of its size since originally it was only going to be a parish temple to help the evangelization of the indigenous population of the area in 1524, but with the increase of its inhabitants over the years and with the opening of the San Blas port nearby, a larger structure was required.

Of neo-Gothic influence, it is an imposing but simple building with attractive lines and details, especially in its 40 meters ( 130 feet) high towers that are supported by a portico with three Gothic levels and are very slender in comparison to others. It is topped by small domes and lanterns.

When you are in front of it, don't forget to admire its natural cedar gate that will be welcoming you and inviting you to come in. Once inside, the high altar made of fine wood crowned by an enormous crucifix will capture your attention.

In addition, in the middle of it, you will find Nuestra Señora de la Asunción (Our Lady of the Assumption), who is the patron saint of this temple. Finally, don't forget to admire the vault that is decorated by a tempera mural painted at the end of the 19th century representing a passage from the Apocalypse.
