Catedral Basílica de Durango, more formally known as Catedral Basílica Menor de la Inmaculada Concepción

Construction 1695 - 1713

Prior to the construction, the old parish of the Assumption stood on this location, which after being named cathedral in the year 1620 on the occasion of the creation of the Diocese of Durango by Pope Paul V, it was destroyed by fire. In 1635, the second cathedral that was being constructed was greatly affected by excess moisture and had to be demolished.

The current cathedral, which still stands, was constructed from 1695 to 1713 (designed by the architect Mateo Nunez).
