From the looks of this church, the Jesuits were the richest of the religious orders in Guanjuato. The stonework on the front is the most ornate in the city. Be sure to take a look when the church is lit up at night.

This seems to be the largest church or temple in Guanajuato. However, it is not as well decorated as others. Paintings and statues are around the sidewalls. "Mother Mary" has pride of place.

At the back of the Compañia is the Pinacoteca full of paintings restored in Gto. within the last 25 years. The massive arches, grey stone, semi-darkness are all... More
