Templo Santa María de Gracia
Este templo de estilo barroco se remonta al siglo XVII, como parte del convento más antiguo de la ciudad, el de las dominicas. La cúpula que lo corona es un logro de la arquitectura del siglo XIX, pero tristemente la iglesia fue mutilada hace poco más de cien años, perdiendo dos de sus tramos.

English:
Temple of Saint Mary of Grace
This baroque church was built during the 17th century as part of the Dominican Sisters convent, the city’s oldest convent. The dome that crowns it is an achievement of the 19th century architecture, but sadly it lost two of its sections when the church was partially destroyed just over 100 years ago.
 
Erected by Gobierno del Estado de Jalisco.
