Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Soledad, Acapulco (must see)

Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Soledad is the most famous and popular church of Acapulco. A bizarre structure built in 1930, the cathedral served as a film set in the beginning. Later on it was changed into a place of worship. Its design is a result of Moorish, Spanish, and native influences. The cathedral has a distinguishable blue dome and Byzantine towers similar to the ones of mesquites. The interior is decorated with glazed tiles and the floor is covered with golden mosaics. You can also see an extensive collection of religious items.

Why You Should Visit:
Located in the heart of the Zocalo square and very picturesque, with splendid valuable metals and artwork inside.
