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. 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.
