Sahuayo

Walking around the main square means visiting three religious temples of great importance to the people of Sahuayo.

The Iglesia del Sagrado Corazón (“Church of the Sacred Heart”) boasts a Greco-Roman style facade, built at the beginning of the 19th century. Its great value lies in the subway catacombs where the remains of priests and cisterns that died defending the faith in the 1920's rest. Here, the urn of the boy José Sánchez del Río, who was a martyr in the Cristera War and was later beatified, is preserved.

A few steps away is the Santuario de Guadalupe (“Sanctuary of Guadalupe”), built in 1882. Its interior is profusely decorated with gold applications and paintings by the master Luis Sahagún.

Finally, there is the Parroquia de Santiago Apóstol (” Santiago Apostle's Parish Church “), the town's patron saint. It is a temple completely carved in quarry. Inside, its main altarpiece features gold applications and marble floors.
