Templo Expiatorio del Santisimo Sacramento, Guadalajara

#2 of 17 in Historic Sites in Guadalajara
Church · Tourist Spot
Look up and admire Templo Expiatorio del Santisimo Sacramento, 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.

  • A very nice church (?) in the middle of Guadalajara. Beautiful stain glass windows and gothic decor. Definitely good to visit for tourists or if you're Catholic.
  • Gothic marvel. Love the plaza in front and alley along the side with food vendors. Gives me the feel that I'm in a smaller village.
