La Cathedral de Cuernavaca fue establecido en el siglo 16, de los Francisanos. La Cathedral es un lugar hermosa que tiene cuatro diferentes iglesias.

 

 

Hay muchas flores de todos colores y muchos arboles por todas partes. La Catedral de Cuernavaca es un sitio único de religión para católicos dedicados. Es la única iglesia en Cuernavaca que presenta Jesús en la cruz con sus manos para abajo que simboliza Resurrección.  EN otras iglesias sus manos están arriba de su cabeza que representa la crucificción.  En una de las pinturas en la catedral, su cara está despintada porque los católicos la tocaba como parte de su practica religioso y como simbolo de su dedicación.

It is the only Church in Cuernavaca that portrays Jesus on the cross with his hands faced down, symbolizing resurrection, where in other churches his hands are above his head, symbolizing his crucifixion. In one paintings of Jesus in the cathedral, his face is faded away because the Catholics would rub his face as a religious practice, and a symbol of devotion.
