El Expiatorio (Temple of the Blessed Sacrament) Tours

Spiked with spindly spires and decorated with fine stonework, the Templo Expiatorio is one of Guadalajara’s iconic churches and a striking example of neogothic style. The first stone was laid in 1897 and construction was completed in the 1930s. Inside, the ambiance is dreamy. Graceful multilayered arches frame an altar backlit by massive stained glass windows and crowned with a giant yet simple gold chandelier. Beams of colored light cast by the stained glass cut through smoke and dust motes, and the air smells of incense, candles, and flowers.

Practical Info

The Templo Expiatorio is located in the University District, so you may want to pair this stop with a visit to the nearby Museo de las Artes de la Universidad de Guadalajara. The church is open to visitors, but remember to wear “respectful clothing.” It’s considered discourteous to show a lot of skin when visiting a Mexican cathedral.
