Almost right in the middle of downtown Guanajuato. I went to see it closely on my last nite here. I noticed the statue of the Pope on the right side of the church. It is an architectural marvel with the chandeliers and gold inside. I wanted to go in, but there was a graduation ceremony going on and I had to respect that! There is a museum open from 1000 to 1500 in the old capilla of the church. I wish I had come earlier. Alot of different stores and restaurants around

40 steps take you inside a magical place. The paintings inside are inspiring. I especially liked the one of Jesus and the boy on his right side. The picture of the white dove is also spectacular. Our guide told us about each painting and the church's history.

Inside it out this structure is beautiful. Off a bright Sunny day it glows with color. At night, It's also beautiful. This is a great center piece in a beautiful city.
