Visit one of World Heritage-listed Oaxaca's most striking architectural sites at Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption. Following the first groundbreaking in 1535, the massive cathedral took some 160 years to complete due to earthquake damage. The bold Baroque exterior features locally mined green caldera stone, the same as many other buildings in town. Inside, the neoclassical design includes an altar with a statue of Our Lady of the Assumption, crafted in Italy in the late 19th century, as well as a locally made pipe organ dating from 1711. With our custom trip planner, Oaxaca attractions like Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
