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.

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.

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.

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.
