Virgin of Zapopan


In Mexico 89% of the population is Roman Catholic. So the images of this religion are really appreciated. One of this is the “Virgin of Zapopan”, that every year does a tour among all the churches in Guadalajara in order to prevent inundations (that refers the tradition) during rain season. But as you can imagine there are so many that she spends most of the year doing this. Her “house” is this magnificent basilica, which was considered a minor cathedral of Guadalajara in 1940. When the image is not here they have an identical that takes its place.
