The Templo de Aránzazu
The Templo de Nuestra Señora de Aránzazu is located in Guadalajara, Mexico. We stopped by check it out during an October 2014 visit to the area. The Templo was built between 1749 and 1752 as part of the a group integrated with the convent of San Francisco. A street now bisects the complex, with the Templo Aránzazu on the west side, and the Iglesia San Francisco on the east.
The Templo is baroque in style and is best known for its beautiful churrigueresque style altarpieces made of carved wood gilded in gold. I tried to get some nice photos of the gilded works. It’s often hard to get good photographs as there isn’t a lot of light inside. The carvings and gilding are beautiful, and well worth stopping to see if you are in Guadalajara.
