This was impressionable to look at both inside and out. Such beautiful architecture in it's grandeur. I would recommend viewing it just before sunset then staying there when it's lit up in the evening. Truly a gorgeous site.

Very nice and old building, from the XVIII century, with a sumptuous interior, and surrounded by a well conserved square and historical buildings. Worth the visit!!

Like most of the city's churches, they are active sites of worship. Our visit was enhanced by several events happening: a quinceaneros and the transfer of the church's prized statue the Virgen de Zapopan. Be sure to see the adjacent Huichol museum (check hours!)

Zapopan used to feel so far away from Guadalajara but this small town is so much closer now. You must visit this beautiful church and taste all the delicious treats just outside.

A great Basilica visited by pope John Paul II with a broad plaza leading down to the large ARCHES of Zapopan where there is curiously enough a GREEK RESTAURANT called Agios Angelos I had to stop and eat of course and LOVED IT!!!!

I like the pictures it takes at night. It is lit up well and you can see it from Pub Row that is a block a way. Entrance is only during the day

Try to visit Zapopan during the Procession of the Virgin (the Virgin returns "home" to the Basilica after touring each parish in the diocese. It is very crowded but an amazing and colorful experience.
