Zapopan, Jalisco, Mexico
When you find a plaza in Mexico, look for a church, basilica, or cathedral on its verge. It's a repetitive geographic association on the cultural landscape of Roman Catholic America. This is the church built to honor the Virgin of Zapopan. It was consecrated as a basilica in 1939, but its foundations go back to 1689.
