This is another view of the Guadalupe Church I posted on January 31, 2006. I was trying to shoot directly at the church with the sun behind it. This was the best I could do.
The Church of Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe is the heart of Puerto Vallarta religious life, and is the focal point of an elaborate 12-day festival each December. The original crown is said to have been modeled after a tiara worn by the mistress of the Emperor Maximilian. The church is made of red bricks and faces west or the Pacific ocean. It is seated on a small hill on the heart of the old Puerto Vallarta fishing town.
