Expiatory Temple, Guadalajara
(4.8/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Expiatory Temple on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Guadalajara trip itinerary builder.

  • The most beautiful temple in Guadalajara. THE architecture is stunning, both outside and inside. Rosettes look beautiful from the inside.

  • This jewel of this architecture in the center of Guadalajara, surrounded by majestic structures like the Rotunda of illustrious men and the degollado theatre. You can easily visit it on your own or through one of the tours which has several times. It is an exquisite place to view!
