Expiatory Temple, Guadalajara

4.8
#2 of 19 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.

  • Not for nothing is the forced to visit in the city, the courtyard on the left is very nice in one of the doors has a kind of "eye that all sees" that I intrigued, if you arrive in the hours of 9 am, 12 pm or 6 pm , you can see the 12 apostles come out at the sound of the clock....
