WOW! Mexican churches are so different to the ones I'm used to. I always think they look more like libraries or something.

These are fantastic. My fiance lived in Mexico in the 70's, including a student stint at the UNAM. I have never visited but it is high on my list of places to travel. My younger daughter visited Mexico on a school trip and loved it. She intends to return.

They are really good and very colorful, especially the ones in small villages. Kind of making church going a fun thing..

These are beautiful building Jose. I love way you captured the first one. It seems such a pity that some of these are falling apart now.

A great selection of different types of churches. Yet, even though different there is something uniquely Mexican about them...

I think. I've been deep into Mexico only one time long ago.

But I've seen lots of movies with Mexican churches! :-)

All churches are very interesting and different. Difficult to say but I guess the first style is my favourite! Wonderful composition!

I have just discovered your blog and I must admit it is a blast!
I love both travelling and photography.
Moreover, Mexico is the top of my list of places to visit next!
I enjoy your photographing style, alhtough I work in a different way.

JM! I really really really missed your blog so much! As a dream traveller, your blog gave me so much inspiration to dream and hopefully, live those dreams on going to those beautiful places and experience their cultures and all the lifestyles of these nations!

I really Love Mexican churches. I can say that they are quite Identical to Philippine Churches but the main difference that I have seen is the height of these beautiful structures! They are really tall and statuesque!

By the way, We passed our Undergraduate Thesis and it feels really really good! Thanks be to God and all of your prayers! God Bless you and your blog as it continues to inspire a lot of people including me!
