Mexico is full of beautiful churches and they seem to have stopped having such an impact on me, but this church is just beautiful. The light from the cupola floods the nave and the gold just shimmers beautifully.

Being inside of this sanctuary is like traveling inside of a Faberge Egg. Every description I had read made this sound like it could be the gaudiest experience and yet, somehow, it's just perfect. Even if you are not the kind of person who puts 'popping in and out of historic churches' on their list of favorite activities, this is... More

It is a beautiful architectural place you must know in Morelia. One of the best temples in the city.

It's one of the most beautiful places to visit in Morelia. The interior walls and the artistic expressions of "arte mestizo" are two experiences for everyone who is looking for an artistic religious spot in a small gem of architecture.

I hand never seen such a beautiful church in Mexico. When I originally took the tour, I had no idea what I was about to see. From the outside is one thing, but on the inside, I just became speechless. This place is a must if you go to Morelia whether you're catholic or not.

I was born in Morelia and lived here all my life. And I can tell you that the Guadalupe Sanctuary is the most beautiful church of all. The outside is sober and doesn´t impress very much, but once you enter, you will see a magnificent interior full of golden details in the French Rococo style. It is worth the visit... More

The Facade, in a very sober baroque style from the XVIII C, collides with the opulent decoration full of colors and forms done by a local artisan in 1915. It is a combination of clay sculpture technique of indigenous tradition with european plasterwork.

It is definitely the most important place to visit in Morelia. Morelia is a beautiful city with many interesting sites but the Sanctuary is the most beautiful church you will see.
