Jalostotitlán

Jalisco

Jalostotitlán, at Altos de Jalisco heart, is a small and picturesque town in the state's southern. One of the region’s most cheerful towns due to its inhabitants kindness and hospitality, it’s perfect to explore on foot and learn about its great cultural, architectural and artistic legacy.

“Jalos”, as locals call it, is characterized by being ideal for resting because of its peacefulness. Looking at its temples and monuments, time seems to stop here, always accompanied by a warm climate to walk through its streets.

Its Historic Center squares are the axis that guide us first to the Plaza de Armas, where it’s 1829-colonial-style building Portal de la Unión, that today houses shops and restaurants; then to Plaza Alfredo R. Placencia, in the center of which erects the John Paul II statue surrounded by two fountains.

A relevant building is the Templo del Sagrado Corazón (Temple of the Sacred Heart), a unique 19th century eclectic jewel, with columns in the two towers and the frontispiece. While the Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción (Parish of Our Lady of the Assumption) was built in a baroque style between the 17th and 18th centuries. The refined marquetry stalls and its eclectic quarry altarpiece stand out.

A full-art destination reflected in the murals painted in Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción by the master Rosalío González and Leónardo de la Mancha. In the City Hall you can see at the ceiling and staircase Alfredo Soto’s mural—shows scenes of carving the land, pilgrimages, as well as town origin.

Stop for a while and taste the region’s delicious gastronomy, such as carnitas, potato toasts, birria, red pozole, milk candies, pumpkin preserves and bread.

Inlaid wood is the craftsmanship par excellence—fine and delicate artisans work. Huaraches and frayed ones are also totally handmade pieces.

From Jalostotitlán you can visit San Juan de los Lagos, Pénjamo, Encarnación de Díaz and Guadalajara, due to their proximity.
