A must see

Unbelievably beautiful. I took photos but discretely as this is a church with people trying to pray.

Traveled to Morelia for business. As a gourmet vegan health advisor & chef I travel to some of the most remote & Beautiful places on earth. This Historical piece of Art is like something out of a story book. A must see.

We strolled along a side street and through the arches to the tree-shaded but irregularly cobbled pedestrianized lane to the Sanctuario de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe. My husband commented that it would have been bested by most village churches in Italy, but I was charmed....More

A unique church where no expense was spared in decorating. I've never seen a church like this and I've visited hundreds of churches in Mexico. A beautiful walk from the centro too. It's a must see.

I can't put into the words the beauty of this sanctuary. Simply Amazing. I did feel awkward "being a tourist" while others were there for a church service.

The door was a little tricky to find but once you’re inside your eyes will be amazed. There was so much to look at and admire!

It's a beautiful church inside and you really should take a stroll through the beautiful streets of Morelia to see it. It's also I a really nice part of town with lovely buildings and of course the viaduct to see while you are there

This chapel has a fantastic interior full of gilding and flowers. It is very much worth the walk from centro historico. In fact, if you walk from the cathedral area, you can see / shop at Museo Del Dulces, see the Fuente de Las Tarascas,...More
