Absolutely beautiful church. Like all such cathedrals it's an architectural wonder. When the sunlight light is bright the colors are beautiful as they are cast from the enormous stained glass windows.

While the cathedral in the city square is magnificent, the architectural beauty of this church is simply marvelous. It is a classical gothic structure and is a must see!

Just wow. Exterior and interior is impressive. A lot of activity around. Locals and travellers. Little markets in the courtyard. Worth checking out. Sunday's during the morning or early afternoon is ideal.

This is by far the most amazing church in Guadalajara. You can spend hours just gazing at the stain-glass, also don't miss the apostles clock, every hour on the hour.

This seemingly ordinary colonial cathedral impresses with extraordinary huge stained-glass windows , which when the sun shines fill the interior creating a beautiful play of light .
