AAA Editor Notes
Basilica of the Immaculate Conception (Basilica de la Inmaculada Concepción) is downtown on the n. side of Plaza República, at Calle Benito Juárez and Av. 21 de Marzo. It is easily recognized by its gold-colored twin spires. The late 19th-century exterior is rather plain, but the beautifully preserved interior is very ornate, with numerous gold accents.
