The Sacred Architecture of Central Mexico

Catedral de Guadalajara

Whether you are a religious person or NOT – the architecture of the sacred places in Central Mexico is an inspiring and world class marvel.

On a recent trip, I captured images inside and out of cathedrals in Guadalajara (Catedral Metropolitano, Templo Expiatorio, (and many others), in Ajijic, Chapala, Jocotepec, Jiquipan, Tizpan, San Cristobal and Petatan.

For me, and I am not Catholic, these structures- many of which took 100 years and 3 generations to build – are humbling – and are a testament to the creative genius of the human spirit and the penchant to create unique and special places for the celebration of the God-Man relationship. Needless to say, they memorialize the centrality of religion in Mexican culture.


I always appreciate viewer/subscriber comments that you can share below in the section provided.

A journey to the other side of Lake Chapala…to encounter the amazing Pelicans of Petatan.
