CATHEDRAL at Monterey, capital of
the state of Nuevo Leon, Mexico.
This massive structure was begun
in 1630, bnt was noc completed until
1800 and was not dedicated until
July 4. 1833. It stands on the east
side of Plaxa de Zanuro ra
in 1848 it was taken by the Ameri
can troops invading Mexico and was
used by them as a powder magazine
during that and the next year. As It
was subject to bombardment by the
American forces oeiore its capture
and by the Mexicans afterwards, it
suffered greatly from the fire and It
was several years after the American
occupation be'ore It was restored.
It is one of the few massive church
structures In Mexico with bat one
tower and the absence of tiles on the
roof of the tower or anrwhere In the
construction of the church is notable.
This is accounted for by historians
bv tha fact that Monterer is a areat
distance from the tile centers of the
country. Puebla, the center of tile
production of the crown colony, is
near Mexico city ana it was too great
distance to transport ine uies
which make many of the Mexican
cathedrals so attractive
The ansterirr of the catnedraL us
lack of art treasures is accounted for
by the fact that Monterey, in its early
d&v had no rich mines to suDDort it
as many or most other Mexican cities
had, hence the church at Monterey
was never as rich as in other places In
Mexico and had not the funds to pur
chase art treasures or silver and gold
