Lonely Planet review for Catedral Metropolitana
Mexico City’s most iconic structure, this cathedral is a monumental edifice, measuring 109m long, 59m wide and 65m high. Started in 1573, it remained a work in progress during the entire colonial period, and thus displays a catalog of architectural styles, with successive generations of builders striving to incorporate the innovations of the day.
