Theme Day-Temple of San Jose
"If I were going to convert to any religion, I would probably choose Catholicism because it at least has female saints and the Virgin Mary." - Margaret Atwood (Canadian)
The church of San Jose (known in Mazatlán as a "temple"), located on a rise of land at the foot of an area called Icebox Hill, is said to be the oldest church in the city, built in 1837 and completed 5 years later. The beautiful mosaic background and statues form a side altar in the small church, and the bottom photo is the main altar, made of wood.
