The Basilica is a gorgeous honey yellow, and in the center of Plaza de la Paz. Makes for a beautiful back-drop and a great place to watch people.

In a country with lots of historic churches and even lots of Basilicas this one is exceptional. The Pope gave a mass here - so people from GTO hold it in a special place. This should be part of a downtown walking tour that includes the Quixote museum, the Teatro Juarez, the San Diego Church (which is a little older and less ornate), the Basilica, the University (with its massive front steps), the Diego Rivera childhood home, and the Alhondiga. Throw in lunch near the Jardin and you have a wonderful day.

The building is beautiful . There is an ATM/cajera automatico on the side of the church. Money changers in the church? Crazy.

This basilica is so beautiful. It sits centrally in the old town, easily accessible from union gardens.
Well worth visiting, if only to admire the ceiling!
