The Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe Left Me Speechless and Will do the Same to You

I was invited to visit Puerto Vallarta, Mexico last week, and I can honestly say it was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken. Since there’s so much I want to share with you about my trip, I figured I’d start with one of the most striking buildings I have ever seen- The Church of Our Lady Guadalupe.

When the foundation of the church was being built in 1903, there was already a small chapel there dedicated to the Virgin Guadalupe. The church is a beautiful mixture of several different types of architectural designs due to the fact it has seen quite a few bishops who preferred various types of design and interiors. Each motif and altar is so different from the next- the church truly is a unique piece of history and art in Puerto Vallarta. At the very top of the church sits the most beautiful crown. The church is open daily and still has services a few times a week, so as a tourist remember to be respectful while exploring and snapping photos. I’ll be sharing more of my trip to Puerto Vallarta with you throughout the week, but in the meantime check out the photos I took of the church below!

Also, a special thanks to Visit Puerto Vallarta and Gustavo Rivas-Solis for the opportunity to take this trip!
