Trip Planner: Mexico / Central Mexico and Gulf Coast / Morelos / Cuernavaca / Cathedral of the Asencion (Catedral de la Asuncion)
At Cathedral of the Asencion (Catedral de la Asuncion), see how a centuries-old religious hub became a flamboyant center for celebration and family gathering. When Spain arrived to conquer these Aztec lands, their piety and influence produced many churches and monasteries around the Popocatepetl volcano, including this 16th-century cathedral. Today, the fortified place of worship serves as a gated garden that hosts traditional Mexican weddings and quinceañera festivities. The complex consists of a walled compound with the main church, cloister, baptism area, and several chapels and small churches. Local "guides" in the vicinity may offer you their services--just make sure to get your money's worth.
