Sanctuary of the Virgin of Juquila

Santuario de la Inmaculada Virgen de Juquila

Built in the 18th century and restored in the 1930s after an earthquake, this church that houses the miraculous image of the Virgin of Juquila is an example of late Spanish baroque style. Despite its religious importance, the church is modest in size, so the interior does not have pews–this way more of the faithful can enter. No matter what time of the year you visit the sanctuary, you will see numerous pilgrims dressed as saints or walking on their knees to the altar. The bells ring nonstop, and the sound of hymns can be heard even outside.
