Longstanding Shrine

Across the street from Alameda Park, the Sanctuary of Guadalupe is a venerable shrine to the Virgin of Guadalupe. The Baroque-style sanctuary, built in the 1700s and managed by the Franciscans, draws the reverent from all across Celaya--not least in December during the Festival of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

The church's pale double bell towers are distinctive. Within, you'll find vaulted ceilings, gild, chandeliers, and a dense collection of religious imagery in the form of paintings and statuary. A statue of Jesus and a painting of the Virgin of Guadalupe mark the altarpiece. The sanctuary also includes works by the famed Celayan artist Octacio Ocampo.
