Puerto Vallarta has a crown….

NOTE: This blog post is dedicated to this church not in a religious point of view.

Yes, Puerto Vallarta has a crown and it is very well know world wide as one of the local landmarks.  This crown also belongs to “La Virgen de Guadalupe” church also known as the “Cathedral” and it supposed to be a replica of a crown that was owned by Empress Carlota, (wife of Maximilian emperor of Mexico from 1864 – 1867)

The story of this church relates to the beginning of the XX century when the bases where set to build the first church in Puerto Vallarta, it started as a small chapel and it has evolved through the years to what it is now.  It was until 1952 when the main tower was finished but the crown, symbol of the church and a times symbol of Puerto Vallarta was set in placed by the year 1963.

This Catholic Church offers services in various languages including English and French.  Inside the building you can find amazing pieces of art, incredible woodwork, all of this framed by huge columns.

You will see it in postcards all over town and it has become a distinctive symbol of Puerto Vallarta.  If you visit down town you can’t miss it, it will be well worth it to take a close look inside and out no matter what your religious beliefs are.
