Templo La Valenciana, Guanajuato

(4.3/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
On a hill overlooking the city, Templo La Valenciana features a pink volcanic stone façade decorated with intricate carvings. The interior layout of this 18th century Mexican Churrigueresque church resembles a Latin cross and holds three towering Churrigueresque altarpieces covered in gold leaf with incredible detail and religious paintings. Antonio de Ordóñez, the owner of the La Valenciana mine, originally built the church in honor of his patron saint, Saint Cajetan, for the riches the mine provided.
