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.

Mazatlan Mexico Animals

As I’ve traveled through Mexico i have seen that the homeless animal problems are very prevalent In some towns the population of animals to people is 2 to 1. There are very few programs here to help these staving, ill and lonely animals. Sadly in many towns the strays are ignored, beaten, and even killed. While there are some people that will feed them, for the most part these animals will never be made a part of their families or ever know what love is.
