“Great Architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

The Expiatory Temple is an amazing gothic building in downtown Guadalajara. If you see it from the outside it looks impressive. Inside the building it can be seen more gothic aspects. The tall columns and the stained glass makes it look big. It is very peaceful to sit there.

“To pray, meditate or just comtemplate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

It is a Beautiful temple with a peaceful silent environment.
You can just stand there for a long time, just admiring all aspects of the temple, taking a look at every details, the beautiful vitral's refraction on the temple's walls.

It worhts the visit and to spend some time with yourself.

“Wonderful place to visit and calm for a moment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

This church is one of my favorite spots in Guadalajara.
The construction is Gothic-ish, it is a good place to check, feel amazed by the complexity, sit down and calm, pray if you feel like.

Don't miss the chance to go there if you are in the area.

“Fun return”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We liked it all. We have been there before, but was a bit disappointed the saints or holy men that came out of the front of the temple on what looked like a track of some sort, on a timed basis was not working.
