We’ve lived here in Mazatlan for around 3 months now. I’ve gotten to know the area fairly well already despite the immensity of it. Centro is a fabulous place and the people are amazing.
Yes I’m talking about the United States of America Fourth of July. Not Mexico’s Independence Day. I went with a new friend of mine whom is actually from Canada funny enough. She has several American friends here in Mazatlan so she celebrated also and invited me along.
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. Originally the cathedral was begun by the order of Bishop Pedro Lorez starting in 1856. In 1899 priest Miguel Lacarra finished the work. The Basilica consecration took place on December 12, 1941. Giving the Basilica de la Inmaculada Concepción special ceremonie privileges given by the pope.
