  • A place for lovers of architecture of majestic and iconic, religious temples in the rear can access the crypts where a series of tunnels used in the time of war Cristeros in this part of the country. Similarity in some features with the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris and bronze gates with a remarkable craft. In the evenings is a spectacle of light and sound that is projected on the Western facade. Recommended

  • An exceptional place. on one side there is a small garden where you can take photos and there are fixed wings for adults and others for children and seems to have angel wings. Just across the street sold cebadina of flavours typical drink of the region. Eye there are occasions that close weekdays during lunch hours. You can park your car in the same Temple without cost when there is place and is on a side street (there is the entrance to the parking lot) is also safe to leave the car.

  • Hermoso templo
  • The church is beautiful and loved the market! The people are very friendly too
  • Audacious and surreal, a pastel dream of Notre Dame
  • It's quite an extraordinary church, especially inside. It that stands in an empty square, which makes all the more visible.
  • Very nice place
