Look up and admire Expiatory Temple, an imposing but attractive place of worship. Construction began in 1897, under the command of Archbishop Pedro Loza y Pardave, and was completed 75 years later, after building was repeatedly interrupted by contemporary events, such as the Mexican Revolution and the Cristero War. The church displays an impressive neo-gothic architectural style, primarily featuring stone carved in a way reminiscent of the Middle Ages. The interior displays three separate Italian mosaics, created in the Vatican, while the high roofs and stained glass works create a sense of awe with their artistry and scale.

  • During a tour told us that at certain times, there was a "Parade" of apostles on one side of the temple. Fortunately to them 22 hours could enjoy of the time magic, enjoy of a delicious Corn Roast from the Esplanade. Excellent architecture.
