Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Our Lady of Guadalupe
Church

  From offshore it stands out among the
downtown buildings (see photo of the
city,
La Ciudad, and click on the church
in the that photo to return to this page)
.
It is the largest or second largest church
in Puerto Vallarta. It was built as a
fortress and its interior even contains a
cannon vault. But, it is the crown atop
the steeple that always attracts your
attention.

The crown is supported by eight angels
(click on the crown in the adjacent photo
to see a close-up of the crown)
. Its open
framework provides a singular counter-
point to the impenetrable stone and
cement of most of the surrounding
buildings.

Unfortunately, L&B were short on time
and did not get to find out more about its
history.
