The silhouette of this church in downtown PV is one of the most definable images of the resort town and its chiming church bells are one of the most recognizable sounds. During the Feast of Guadalupe, held every year from Dec. 1 through Dec. 12, the church is a hub of activity. During the annual festival, there is plenty of music, dancing and street processionals. 

Recent visitors said that you can enjoy visiting this parish by just pausing a moment during a Malecón stroll to admire the church's Renaissance-style tower. Others recommended stopping inside to see the gorgeous interior or attending Mass (English services are held Saturdays at 5 p.m. – a bilingual service is held every Sunday at 10 a.m.).

La Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, as it's known by locals, is open daily. The bells ring 30 and 15 minutes before each Mass. Access is free.
