Shelby S. 5th period

What is it?

The metropolitan cathedral is the oldest and largest roman catholic church in the america's. It was built in in sections from 1573 to 1813. It was built soon after the Spanish conquest of tenochtitlan. It is almost directly on top of templo mayor, of the aztec city of tenochtitlan. Since it was constructed a long time ago it has suffered major damage over the years. It is slowly sinking into the land. Even though it is "drowning" , it is one of the most extravagant cathedral. It was made with extreme care, caution, and detail.
