The Parish of Our Lady of Guadalupe, known in Culiacán as La Lomita, is one of the most visited places by parishioners and tourists in Culiacán.
In addition to having very striking architecture, it is located on a hill where you can have a great view of the city.
La Lomita is definitely a “postcard” place, in its viewpoint it is common to find landscape or wedding photographers, Quinceañeras, taking souvenir images.
Small food stalls offer popsicles, ice cream or snacks for sale, to the delight of visitors.
Many families, in addition to attending religious ceremonies, walk around the viewpoint, enjoying beautiful sunsets.
To go up to the temple there is a wide and illuminated staircase, with 144 steps that begins in a small park located on the corner of Ciudades Hermanas and Álvaro Obregón Avenue.
The parish has two side entrances and one front entrance, and the interior space is decorated with artistic pieces of great spiritual value for devotees of the Virgin of Guadalupe.
The Parish of Our Lady of Guadalupe “La Lomita” is one of the most beautiful Catholic temples in the city.
In its stained-glass windows, which are considered among the largest in Latin America, the story of the appearance of the Virgin of Guadalupe to Juan Diego is told.
It is located on Paseo de Humaya street, in the Guadalupe neighborhood, next to the San Luis Lindavista hotel and very close to the Galerías San Miguel Shopping Center.
How this Virtual Tour was made
Capturing the photographs for this virtual tour during the golden hour at sunset posed several challenges due to the technical limitations of the DJI Phantom’s camera.
The slowest shutter speed I could use, considering the drone’s movement caused by the wind and to prevent blurred images, was one-quarter of a second.
