Sayula

Jalisco

To the east of the state of Jalisco is located Sayula, a municipality famous for its handmade knives, a centennial house producer of cajeta, its streets decorated with amazing arches and for being the birthplace of the writer Juan Rulfo.

To get to Sayula will take you only 1 hour 45 minutes (115 km / 71 miles) from Guadalajara; 90 minutes from Colima (105 km / 65 miles) and less than an hour if you leave from Tapalpa (48 km / 30 miles).

Its semi-dry and semi-warm climate most of the year makes it ideal to visit in any season. The average temperature is stable at 20.9° C ( 69.6° F).

The city is full of arches everywhere, some of the most striking are concentrated in the downtown and many others continue their journey to the surrounding streets. If you look carefully, you will see that they have a name dedicated to some historical figure, generally accompanied by a plaque illustrated with their faces.

Walking around the Plaza de Armas you will find a peaceful space where people gather to enjoy the afternoon while the pigeons are fed by the children.

In front of the kiosk, you will find a fountain and some coffee shops to have a drink when you are tired of walking.

Nearby is el Templo de la Inmaculada Concepción (“Temple of the Immaculate Conception”), an 18th century building built with pink quarry where you will see paintings that narrate the lives and miracles of some of the saints. There is also an Arial Cross dedicated to San Rodrigo Aguilar, a priest born in Sayula who was canonized 20 years ago.

At night, you may see the silhouette of a ghost that, it should be clarified, is the Anima de Sayula, a legend of the town that you will love to know. And in case you thought it was a fairy tale, we'll clarify that it's more like “ teatre “, since at night some companies of actors present this theatrical legend for you to enjoy in the moonlight.
