There are so many famous churches around the world it can sometimes be hard to place them with just an image, but there is no mistaking this one. The silhouette of the church is topped by a distinctive crown hoisted up by figrines of angels. Also distinctive are the unique sound of the chiming bells, which sound a quarter hour before mass time. The church's legend goes that in 1531, the Virgin Mary appeared before Juan Diego, cured his uncle of a terrible disease, and then demanded a church built in her honor. The structure you see today was built in the 1900s. Though you can visit for mass, it's enough to just take pictures of the church. The interior is pretty but not otherwise significant.

This is a quick must-see. Quiet and with masses in English sometimes if you happen to want to attend. Very quaint, but the crown on top is the draw. A sculpture really. Feel free to visit, take pictures, sit quietly or whatever. It's a lovely spot to visit in the Vallarta heat.
I asked permission prior to taking any photos and made a donation. What an amazing experience just looking at this church from the outside only to be blown away by the level of detail on the inside. The crown at the top of the cathedral which was hoisted by angles to resemble the one worn by Empress Carlota. This cathedral has mass in English and Spanish on Saturday and Sundays, but open for prayer daily.
Being the main church in Puerto Vallarta, I think the parish should take more care of their central point of attraction. I went with my parents and a wheel chair and it is not friendly at all. The ramp was closed but even if it had been open, it is so steep that it will be barely help at all. I imagine long ago this should have had a big plaza like many towns in Latin America, but here they allowed the markets to eat away the plaza. The streets in front of the church are so small and crowded that is a pain to walk around. With so much money of the Catholic Church, they should also take care of such landmarks like this one. It is too small for the amount of visitors that attend it. I think they could well expand it. It has no A/C... just letting you know.
Beautiful Parish, great to visit on December 1-12
I am so glad we found this place by accident. It was just a beautiful experience.
