Wonderful church and plaza, very close to the Universidad de Guadalajara Museum. I would recommend a tour in order to learn more about the history of the church and University.

Amazing architecture, the place is in a good area to walk, there is a museum next door and one of the most famous avenues of the city where you can see some of the most gorgeous mansions and chalets of the early 1900`s.

definitely worth a visit, although about 40 years old, its style is gothic. Come around 12 pm exactly they have the 12 apostles come out of some small doors on the hour. It takes place outside the church on the left side.

Its architecture is amazing, you won't be able to stop looking at it, plus it has a gothic style which makes it even more wonderful, it really is one of a kind, and it should definitely be a must do in your visit to Guadalajara.

This Gothic style church was constructed las century following the same techniques as the original Midelages churches contructed in Europe. This church owns a fine tube organ and sometimes offer organ recitals open to all public free
