Practical Information

La Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe is the heart of Puerto Vallarta's religious life, and is the focal point of an elaborate 12-day festival each December. The structure itself was built during a 12-year period beginning in 1929. The interior is filled with hand-carved columns, decorative moldings and other rich detailing. An earthquake damaged the ornate crown that originally adorned the church, which was later replaced. The original crown is said to have been modeled after a tiara worn by the mistress of the Emperor Maximilian. Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe is usually open to visitors from 10a.
