I loved the architecture of The Expiatory Temple! While I was visiting it there was a wedding going on inside, it was beautiful. I loved the fountain in front of the Agave plant, which is used to make Tequila. A friend and I went to a restaurant in front of the Expiatory Temple and were able to enjoy the view... More

The structure as seen from outside is imposing but the inside is awe-inspiring; simple minimalist on the inside but what captures is the soaring ceiling and the stained glass windows, very different from the typical Spanish colonial churches with the entablados full of saints.

Although not as impressive as the central cathedral from the outside, the vaulted arches, the beautiful altar and the paintings were lovely. Not a bad walk from the central cathedral. The park behind the Expiatory temple is pleasant.

We (unfortunately) went after hours, and the main cathedral was closed. The architecture is wonderful, and I can't wait to go back and see inside. After we took a horse drawn carriage ride around town - it was very informative!

A unique spire gives this church its characteristic look while its interior is wonderfully decorated, well worth your visit close to downtown

It is worth a visit to see the beautiful interior of this church. And it is right behind a lovely University building which has a nice art display
