Mazatlan Basilica interiorIn the view of the Mazatlan City Guide, no day of sightseeing in Mazatlan is complete without letting the towering double spire of the Basilica de la Inmaculada Concepcion guide you to the very center of The Pearl of The Pacific.

Begun by the Bishop Pedro Loza y Pardave in 1856, the Basilica de la Inmaculada Concepcion was built on the site of an ancient Indian temple.

Mazatlan's turbulent history delayed the completion of the Basilica de la Inmaculada Concepcion until 1899. In 1937 -- after additional work -- the Basilica de la Inmaculada Concepcion was elevated to the status of a "basilica", a Roman Catholic church or cathedral given special ceremonial privileges by the Pope.

Mazatlan Cathedral exteriorInside the Basilica, the image of the city's patron saint, the Virgen de la Purisima Conception (Virgin of the Immaculate Conception) floats over the glided, baroque main altar.

Overhead, soaring rounded Renaissance domes and gilded Gothic arches create an airy and spiritual space.

The Basilica also has a unique architectural feature: each of its 28 stained glass windows incorporates a Star of David which were installed in gratitude for the donation of construction funds by a wealthy Mazatlan Jewish family.

Exterior Basilica SculptureThe Cathedral Basilica de la Inmaculada Concepcion also has a majestic organ built in Paris by Aristide Cavaille-Coll, widely considered one of the greatest organ builders of the nineteenth century.

Highly recommended by the Mazatlan City Guide, there is a wonderful bonus to this Mazatlan sightseeing attraction: in front of the Basilica de la Inmaculada Concepcion the lush tropical foliage of the central Plaza de la Republica encloses a traditional Mexican wrought-iron Porfirian bandstand, making the plaza a perfect shady place to quietly reflect after a visit to our majestic cathedral.

Location Benito Juarez and Calle 21 de Marzo facing Plaza de la Republica

Hours Open daily 6am-1pm and 4pm-8pm
