  • The construction is majestic, with a sculptural work on his forehead which is exquisite and requires time to be admired. The interior, sober in contrast to the exterior, is a quiet place where you can admire the image venerated Catholics from the region. Out of the temple there is a square with places to buy, drink, food or souvenirs.

  • Worth hanging out by the center of zapopan and look at the Church, you have to eat in the vicinity, can be seen best from the other side of the square.

  • It is a very special for all the people of guadalajara celebration, personallycontact I did not like was overflowing with people, many retailers had a very short time to enter to visit the Chapel, better go on a different day to appreciate the place as it should be.
