2018 - Mexico - Morelia - Sanctuary of Our Lady of Guadalupe - 2 of 3

The ceiling and dome of Sanctuary of Our Lady of Guadalupe is gorgeous.

 

The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Guadalupe, known locally as Santuario de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe has one of the most spectacular church interiors in Mexico.

 

Widely regarded as a national treasure, the interior was sumptuously decorated in the brightest of colors by European and native craftsmen, including countless fine plaster rosettes rising up the walls to the gold leaf covered ceiling.

 

Construction began in 1708 and was completed in 1716.
