Part of Mazatlan’s Historic Centro

The Basilica de La Inmaculada Concepción of Mazatlan
I decided to take a day trip into Mazatlan’s Historic Centro or the big “C” as Jeff likes to call it. At one of Mazatlan’s most loved  catholic churches it is a place not to be missed.

From what I read this was definitely the place.
