Mexico, Catedral 2

The Cathedral Metropolitana in Mexico City is one of the largest cathedrals in the Western Hemisphere. It was constructed in the Spanish Baroque style of architecture and includes a pair of 64-meter neoclassical towers which hold 18 bells. The church is the cathedral of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Mexico. It is located on Mexico City's central square, the Zócalo. The cathedral was consecrated in 1667, but the final elements — bell towers and central dome designed by the Spanish neoclassical architect Manuel Tolsá — were finished in 1813.
