Route & Duration
The Guadalajara Cathedral, also known as the Cathedral of the Assumption of Our Lady, is a minor basilica and the Roman Catholic cathedral of the Archdiocese of Guadalajara. Except for the Neo-gothic spires, it is built in the Spanish Renaissance style. The original cathedral, on the location of the current Templo de Santa Maria de Gracia, was completed in 1541. This early church was made of adobe and had a thatched roof. Nonetheless, the Holy See named the territory a diocese in 1548, and the church became the city's cathedral.
