This temple is a treasure of Guadalajara. Its construction began in 1749 and today it contains three Baroque-style altars with ornamental gold details. It is dedicated to “Our Lady of Aránzazu,” an alternate name for the Virgin Mary.
This is one of the oldest Catholic chapels in the city. It dates from April 1551, when the first Bishop of Guadalajara, Pedro Gómez Maraver, built a hermitage there.
