Although we tried to visit this sacred place, we only admired the exterior, as construction works are in progress and the church seems inaccessible at this moment (July 2019).

Sadly this building is still being restored after the earthquake in 2017. But it's a nice spot for photos.

Very impressive, and easy to get to. Well worth visiting, but again very busy so needs to be planned properly

February 2019: the church is closed for restoration, and nobody knows for how long it will remain closed. The building is inaccessible, since it is surrounded by fences. Nice murals have been painted on the fences. And that's all.

The marketplace outside the church comes to life in the evening with indigenous people selling textiles. The church is now closed due to the 2016 earthquake. It's still beautiful to look at. This is town is very very safe.

Sadly this cathedral, like many in Mexico was damaged during the earthquake of November 2017. And is undergoing extensive renovations. It is only possible to take photos of the exterior
