The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Guadalupe is a stunning blend European and Meso-American architectural sensibilities. Prepare to have your senses dazzled with color, design, and texture. The plasterwork is like nothing I've seen anywhere. This is one of 249 Unesco status buildings in Morelia...More

This is an amazing church! My wife and I visited Morelia while on vacation, and this was one of the places we absolutely had to visit. The exterior is nice, but not flashy at all. Prepare to be awestruck once you step inside. It might...More

This early 18th century church is baroque at its finest. It's definitely must-see when you're in Morelia. Walk there via the beautiful Ctz. Fray Antonio de San Miguel, which is a pedestrian walkway paved in stone and lined with trees. For excellent coffee, pastry, or...More

Simply stunning interior, very moving painting/hige, almost murals on the wall. Started in 1706 I believe - there is a sign in the west courtyard in spanish and English with a brief history of the church.

This is an extremely ornate baroque church that overflows with gold and golden leaf ornaments. Is worth the trip a bit out of downtown when visiting Morelia. Try to go during a service, so you can appreciate the intricate ornaments while they are lit.
