Know by Virtual Reality the Cathedral of Culiacán

Few people know this beautiful temple by its official name: Cathedral of Our Lady of the Rosary. It was built at the end of the 19th century in the Historic Center of the city, where the Parish of the Old Villa of Culiacán was located. 

On the main façade of the Cathedral of Culiacán, we can see a circular clock and a sculpture of San Miguel Arcángel, patron saint of the city.

The work was carried out in stages over more than thirty years with great effort from the community, and the initial responsible was the parish priest of Imala. 

It features a wide variety of saint figures that are true treasures, as they date back to the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. 

The most important ones are the Virgin of the Rosary, which is over 300 years old, San Miguel Arcángel, San Judas Tadeo, San Martín de Porres, La Virgen de Guadalupe, María Auxiliadora, San Francisco de Asís.

Inside, the decorations of the altarpieces of the two altars stand out, which are almost reaching the presbytery, the altar of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the altar of the Virgin of the Immaculate Conception. 

The most recent figure is that of Mother Teresa of Calcutta and the paintings of Pope John Paul II and San Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer. 

The figure of the Divine Prisoner, which is located at the entrance of the Cathedral of Culiacán, is one of the most visited by the parishioners. There are also four figures in high polychrome relief that personify the four evangelists.

How this Virtual Tour was made

Photographing temples presents a huge challenge to achieve adequate exposure both inside the buildings and in the windows, doors, and lighting of the lamps.  

I used bracketing with my Nikon D810 camera and later in Photoshop, I merged two images using luminance masks.
