“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.

“Beautiful Church.....But Don't Miss The Dancing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a beautiful church and well worth the visit....but don't miss the dancing. Every Sunday evening in the plaza in front of the church there is Guadalajara's version of ballroom dancing! There are apparently lessons/practice starting at 7:00 PM with the more advanced dancers appearing at 9:00 PM??. As we watched the very formal spinning and stepping my wife and I just stood their with our happy smiles.....then we were off to churros at La Bombilla as a night time treat with all of the locals.

“The best church in Guadalajara”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Stained glass and amazing architecture. Very different plaza with only native art for sale. So quiet.
