The church is beautiful from the outside. The pink stone really added to the charm. Sadly we did not see the inside as it was closed when we arrived.

This is a beautiful churcch, decorated with stained glass windows and paintings. Although the Cathedral of Zacatecas is extremly beautiful on the outside, the Santo Domingo is much, much more beautiful in the inside.

Attended a beautiful Mass and soaked in centuries of spirituality. Don't miss this holy place, regardless of your faith.

The church recently underwent a major restoration project. It's a fine example of the architecture and adornments in Spanish Colonial churches of the period, especially is areas where Spanish colonists found gold and silver.

Historical church and a nice plaza adjacent to it! The Church is good for a nice stroll, particularly around its adjacent plaza which is very aesthetic!
