  • This church, located in the Zapopan district, is one of the most beautiful churches I've seen thus far in Mexico. On the day we arrived, they were preparing for a funeral so it was interesting to see how they did it based on their custom. The architectural detail outside is amazing. Along side of the church is the center district with many small streets filled with businesses and places to eat. The cab fare from the expo area cost 130 pesos.
  • Was here in 2011. Very nice and calm place.
  • Cool basilica. Excellente museo de las Huicholes indigenas in the building.
  • this is a really beautiful Catholic Church every stone is placing a perfect setting this Catholic church has a lot of detail
  • Enjoyed myself
