Built in the 1800s and reconstructed after severe problems in the 1900s. It was covered with pink quarry with Corinthian columns and a segmented dome. The beautiful main altar of white Carrara Marble is dedicated to the Immaculate Conception (Virgin Mary).

Like many cities in Mexico, the central square has a cathedral and typically government buildings and restaurants. Tampico is not different. The Cathedral is nice. It was in renovations when I visited, so I was only able to peek inside. It is beautiful inside, but...More

The Cathedral and the Plaza are a nice place to go when you want to hang out, see some local sights, maybe have a Torta and just chill out.
