I'm not that religious, but I do love good architecture, as much as I love food. This Gothic church, has remarkable details in design and function. Plus the place is just great to relax and reflect upon life.

We saw this church when passing through Guadalajara. It's a beautiful Gothic building with a lovely square. Particularly striking in the evening, as it's very well lit.

My first time here at the Templo Expiatorio, Catholic Church, located in Guadalajara, Jalisco. The church is of neo-Gothic style. Beautiful church.

Wonderful church and plaza, very close to the Universidad de Guadalajara Museum. I would recommend a tour in order to learn more about the history of the church and University.

Amazing architecture, the place is in a good area to walk, there is a museum next door and one of the most famous avenues of the city where you can see some of the most gorgeous mansions and chalets of the early 1900`s.

This is a must visit when in Guadalajara, the building dates back to 1872 and took over 70 years to finish but worth it! Dedicated to the Blessed Sacrament. The huge, stained glass windows, including the rosette on the facade, were executed by Jacques and...More

definitely worth a visit, although about 40 years old, its style is gothic. Come around 12 pm exactly they have the 12 apostles come out of some small doors on the hour. It takes place outside the church on the left side.
