Seeing from the outside is amazing, seeing it from inside the temple is a whole different experience. The light from the stained Glass make the experience downright magical. The history of this building is also important to know before you visit it.

An easy walk from our hotel. So enjoyed the peacefulness of the church and the street corn😁. We came a second time and got to watch the end of a wedding, so beautiful.

It's amazing how a building can give you so many emotions just coming in I'm thrill and touched by its beauty (it doesn't matter if you are religious or not) the windows architecture and everything that involve being there gives you a new way to experience the city! Highly recommended

This church has an amazing carrillo. which is a bell instrument that plays songs every 15 minutes. But on the hour a parade of dolls circle a balcony. The temple itself is a ver impresive neo-gothic construction. A must in Guadalajara.

This place is gorgeous. The grey stone is a marvelous contrast for the glass scenes, the coming in natural light, and the magnificent altar. I did not have enough time to take the whole place in. The surrounding buildings are also worth everyone's attention.

24 hour choice for Adoration in a beautiful European style church. This is a top visiting choice for visitors.

I got the end of the mass in the Temple and it is really a comfortable place to be in. The architecture is fantastic with it vitrals (stained glass windows) and high ceilings. A great place to visit while in downtown.

The Temple is well worth seeing. It displays an architecture and history that quite frankly I wasn't aware of!
