Part of the reason I got sunburnt is we spent some time the rooftop of the Cathedral.
First of all, this Cathedral is the biggest in South and North America, according to WikiTravel. I read that there was a tour of the bell towers for only 15 pesos, super cheap! We decided to go for it and it was so worth it. After waiting 15 minutes we were lead to an outside door and went up some stairs.
Then we went up some smaller stairs.
Then we went up a winding metal staircase that was outside. Cue my fear of heights. I was scared!
|We didn't go up these stairs.|
The guide told us stories about the bells, how much they weigh, and how old they are.
At noon they rang the bells. It was surreal to be standing on the roof looking all over Mexico City listening to the bells ring. I definitely got my dollars worth.
