I live in Mexico and believe me I have seen my share of churches. I enjoy them all. Many look very similar and other have just that difference that really makes them a must see. From it[s history to the very open and large feel, Basilica de Nuestra Senora de la Salud is well worth the visit if you find... 更多
I visited on a Sunday. There were no services at the time but the doors were open. Hours posted outside showed most days you can visit until about 8pm. The outside was not traditional and not elaborate but the interior was unexpectedly grand. Recommend a visit.
It';s easy to let yourself slip back in time to the colonial days in Patzcuaro when walking the expansive grounds or just sitting quietly in the last pew in the church. Up and away from the center. Nice way to "absorb" the feel and spirit of days gone by.
Typical boveda ceilings and dome at the transept. Very light and airy compared with many churches in Mexico. Well attended on the day I was there as it was Palm Sunday. Lots of stall outside selling religious and other knick knacks.
Nice little church in Patzcuaro ... great for a stroll around inside and a quick look! Not a must stop though in Patzcuaro.
Church built in the 16th century. Quiroga's remains are buried here, just inside the front door and to the left. You can walk behind the statue of the virgin and attach a milagro to her cape with your request.
Burial place of Vasco de Quiroga - a 16th century "rock star." Immense interior with a trompe d'oeil flat ceiling painted to appear vaulted. The largest church in Patzquero. A large market outside. Named after the healing powers of a statue of the virgin. Don't expect good acoustics if you attend to hear a concert.
