Fabulous architecture and beautiful windows. There was a wedding there when we visited and it was so nice to see a beautiful building being used. Was there just before the hour so saw the procession of religious figures before the clock struck the hour, very clever.

Don't miss Christ and the disciples coming out of the clock at certain times of the day. I believe it is the only Gothic Style church in Guadalajara.

I liked it; it was worth going FOR ME because I like architecture and gloomy places. I took baroque art in college and I liked applying my knowledge to it. I even sat through 20 minutes of mass (I am an atheist, mind you). I took lots of pics and then I left to see some murals at the University.... More
