“Don't Miss it!”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

This is a very beautiful Catholic Church in Guanajuato Centro. There are so many Catholic Churches and a Basilica in GTO city and all are worth seeing. Temolo de la Compania de Jesus, built by the Jesuits, is the most beautiful.

“Fine exterior churrigueresque portals”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Very large church with some 19c. paintings on display. Very tall dome, see the entry portal (early churrigueresque style).

“Impressive”
Reviewed 15 November 2012

From the looks of this church, the Jesuits were the richest of the religious orders in Guanjuato. The stonework on the front is the most ornate in the city. Be sure to take a look when the church is lit up at night.

“Very Large Temple”
Reviewed 2 July 2012

This seems to be the largest church or temple in Guanajuato. However, it is not as well decorated as others. Paintings and statues are around the sidewalls. "Mother Mary" has pride of place.
