I have always enjoyed this gothic temple. It is one of the very few edifices in the city that kept true to the original design and style of architecture. Like many churches that were built 400+ years ago, they tend to change archtecturally with the changing centuries. But this gothic beauty only took just over a century to build!! So it is the original design. You have to see it in the afternoon to really get the beauty from inside as well with the stained glass- a wonder in itself!

I love this place so much. I got married here! It is just beautiful inside and out. And there is nothing better than being surrounded by Mexican culture - which you can really absorb in the court yard in front of the church. One of Guadalajara's true gems. Love it.

Expiatorio was my favorite place in central Guadalajara only a 20 minute walk from the very center of the historic district. I walked there a number of times during my short stay in Guadalajara and sat in the back of the church during a catholic mass. Its soaring aisles and gothic architecture are spectacular and compare favorably with European cathedrals.At night the plaza outside fills with street vendors and music. This is well worth a visit if you need a quiet, contemplative hour away from the traffic chaos of the city.
