Expiatory Temple, Guadalajara

4.9
#2 of 17 in Historic Sites in Guadalajara
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.

  • Historic and emblematic building, located at the confluence of the av. Enrique Díaz de León y calle Lopez Cotilla very close to the downtown area of Guadalajara, Jalisco... A place where the faithful Catholics to profess their faith and attend visitors to admire the architecture of its construction and the colors of its stained glass windows on its altars, as well as delight with the sound of bells of the clock, at noon three, six, nine and thirty night with a melody to accompany paraded a series of characters on its marquee at high altitudes of one of its towers... And that said for the gastronomic delight will experiment with all the traditional treats that are sold in the surrounding area: cooked corn with chile, lemon and salt, cornbread, corn on the cob with cream and Chili, jericallas, flan, cake slices, apples Caramelized, with chamoy, in short, an experience of flavours that will delight their palates...!

  • The Templo Expiatorio in Guadalajara is an impressive architectural gem of neo-Gothic style, and is considered the maximum work in style across the country. Visit at night, you'll be surprised.

Where to stay in Guadalajara

If you want proximity to historical attractions and convenient access to public transport, you'll be able to find something to suit any budget downtown, with the central thoroughfare of Avenida Juarez offering perhaps the widest range of options. Slightly southwest of the center, the neighborhood of Ciudad del Sol also offers a good selection of budget-friendly options, while in the southeast, Tlaquepaque--formerly a city in its own right--features some fancier hotels in a more relaxed setting.
