The Atrium of the Basilica is splendid giving you a perfect entourage to the beautiful Church, dated from XVII Century. The sculpture of the Virgen de Zapopan is from the XVI Century and is very devoted by the people from all Mexico. Adjacent to the Convent you will find the Museo Huichol, which has a fine collection of this handcraft... More

Beautil Franciscan convent and church! With a Carrara marble altar! The church is actually not big ! But so much beauty ! Be sure to visit the Huichol museum next door, small fee at the museum with interesting Huichol facts and shopping for inexpensive handcrafts

We were there back in 7/2010. It was a tiny town but the church was full of history. As soon as you walk in you get transported to its time. Beautiful inside and out.

Seat of the Virgen of Zapopan which was brought over by the Spanish and makes its anual round through the entire state of Jalisco. Its surroundings are pleasant, traffic free, with many restaurants and a large fountain at the entrance of the square.

The Basilica de Zapopan houses the Virgin of Zapopan. She is a corn husk, be it a pretty one. Skepital of the devotion towards her, I watched as pilgrim after pilgrim paid respect. They come, they ask, and then they come back and say thank you when the prayer is answered. Meaning no disrespect here. I myself gain a huge... More

This review is for the basilica, but there's so much more in the area! Check out the beautiful basicila, the plazas on each side, the palacios, the fountains, the Teatro, and much more. Start at the church and be sure to visit the smaller plazas on the north, west, and south sides of the church before walking down the long... More

The basilica at Zapopan, on the western fringe of metropolitan Guadalajara, justifiably makes the list of top attractions. We stayed in Guadalajara Centro at the wonderful Hotel Morales for a week in May. As such, we were two blocks away from the largest street in the center of the city, 16 Septiembre, which runs north past the Iglesia San Francisco... More
