Here is a worship space that never forgets the miracle, blessings and joy of resurrected life. If architecture could sing, the Baroque church of Santuario de Guadelupe in the Mexican city of Morelia would sing Easter alleluias. As one travel writer remarks, the pink and white walls “bloom with white flowers and glisten with an abundance of gold leaf.” The church was constructed between 1708 and 1716, and the interior decoration was done in 1915.
