Museum of Sacred Art

Sayula

This museum is located next to el Santuario a la Virgen de Guadalupe (The Sanctuary of the Virgin of Guadalupe), known as el Templo Nuevo (The New Temple). Open since 2007, the site has three rooms where you can see a large collection of paintings, sculptures and objects that the Franciscan order has acquired over the years.

Some of the pieces you will see inside the museum lack information, but this is not due to anything else but the ambiguity caused by its antiquity, because its periods are imprecise and remain a real mystery.

Another fact that you will find interesting is that the Franciscan convent is still in use. Its multiple arches, the white color of its walls and its extensive garden full of palm trees leave no room for doubt and make you think that in this place time stopped, preserving its aesthetics without any alteration.

A beauty transformed into ruins is el Templo Antiguo de San Roque (Old Temple of St. Roque), which was built in 1646 and in spite of preserving only some walls, pillars and lacking domes, it transports you to the territories reserved for the imagination where it will be enough to close your eyes to think about it in its most splendid years.
