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.

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

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.

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.

This church is big inside and spartan by comparrison to the other churches/templos in the village. Made of cantera, divided into two areas, very high and there are people buried in the walls. This is a down to earth working church. Sundays, standing room only....More
