If you are the kind of person that loves and admires architecture, specially historic, you should arrange a visit to feel and live the experience of being under these super tall archs and towers. Free to public. Easy convenient public parking. About $12 pesos an hour.

This church is surprising in many ways. It feels so European, so out of place with its tinted windows and vaulted ceiling. The architect is a noteworthy Guadalajara native, definitely a must. Also, on weekends in the afternoon the food offering on the plaza is delicious and authentic!

I was married in this church many years ago because, in a city with incredibly beautiful churches, this was the ONLY European-style Gothic church. It is majestic and about 1 mile from downtown, so you have to travel to see it. It is worth every second of your time as it is an architectural gem. The outside features a very... More

Visited the church after going through MUSA, well worth the stop. The steeple seemed to go on forever and the stained glass was beautiful.

It is large and has a brilliant structure. The exterior is beautiful both day and night. At night, it will be lighted up so it looks very charming. A must see spot in Guadalajara.

This church was amazing, the arched ceilings, courtyard and stained glass windows were amazing! Reminded me of the st johns (i think) cathedral in Cambridge, UK.

This nice catholic church of neo-gothic style is located in downtown Guadalajara. The outside architecture is beautiful, and inside the stained glass is impressive. Make sure not to miss the figures of the apostles that show outside a couple of small wooden doors on the left tower every hour.
