Museos Y Mas

Standard

Although I prefer to be outside in the sunshine, the rainy season is upon us and is relentless, so I have now begun to venture indoors on my excursions.

Hospicio Cabanas was the first treasure I found. In another lifetime this ancient building was an orphanage. I was delighted with the view I found just beyond the entrance.

Next I headed indoors to peruse some art. The murals on the walls and ceiling by Orozco were amazing!

I then headed into one of the smaller galleries to view a collection called  “Amen”  by artist Gaal D. Cohen. This one really spoke to me.

I found this on display in another room.

The next museum on my agenda was Museo Regional De Guadalajara. The main floor has several rooms containing artifacts and relics.

I climbed the old stone steps to the second floor and found some awesome art and busts.

Whenever I have ventured into other pueblos in Jalisco, churches have been at the top of my list. So I have decided to start exploring some of these in Guadalajara.

This week I visited Templo De San Jose De Gracia in the Centro Historico.

Although it was late morning, I was surprised to see quite a few people praying. This limited my photo opportunities as I take care not to disturb or offend people when I take pictures inside a church.

Another church I visited was Templo Nuestra Senora Del Carmen, located just off of Pavo on Juarez.

Numerous other churches and museums scattered throughout Guadalajara await my visits. And I have a growing appreciation for the culture and the beauty of this incredibly amazing city in which I now live.
