I liked it, but it scared the kids!It is a gothic building that they were convinced was from a horror movie!
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.
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.
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.
Every thing was written in spanish. It was so beautiful to see but I could see a travelar who only speacks english a bit and doesnt know a word of spanish can feel confused at what they are seeing
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... More
