The Parish of Our Lady of Guadalupe, simply known by all as "the cathedral of Puerto Vallarta", is one of the favorite icons and landmarks of this beautiful beach city, so you should not miss it.
The history of the construction of the cathedral of Puerto Vallarta began in 1903, when the first foundations were laid to build a religious temple greater than the chapel that already existed. However, these were not completed until 1917 and construction work progressed until the early 1920s. It is considered that the official start date of construction of this church is October 12, 1921, and therefore every year, on this day, a special mass is celebrated to celebrate.
The total construction period lasted until 1952, when the main tower was completed; There were several interruptions over the years. Its characteristic crown, located in the highest part of the church, was not put there until 1965.
The Parroquia de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe is located in the center of Puerto Vallarta, a few minutes walk from the boardwalk, another of the most iconic attractions in the destination. In it you will find restaurants, bars, shops and you can admire incredible outdoor sculptures that are exhibited permanently throughout its length; all of them made by important national and international artists. The boardwalk is an ideal place to watch the sunset.
Another few steps away is the famous Romantic Zone of Puerto Vallarta, an area with a traditional Mexican village atmosphere that makes it totally charming. Full of life, this area has picturesque streets full of art galleries, clothing and craft shops, cafes, markets, bars and Mexican restaurants.
