Sangre de CristoSe construyo este templo a extramuros y fue que en su entorno se formo un barrio tal, que luego caracterizo un estilo que dio un perfil de ciudadanos con su propia micro cultura en la ya de por si singular ciudad de San Juan de los Lagos.Parecía ser la frontera de la ciudad al estar enclavado en un predio anexo al camino real de salida a Guadalajara, todo esto en la época en que Lerdo de Tejada gobernaba el país en 1872 fecha en la que se inicio la construcción en forma lenta; para 1900 ya estaba terminada la bóveda central pero el culto se llevaba en lo que son la sacristías actualmente. En 1900 se inicio el cimborrio de la cúpula la que si se termino con prontitud. Con un estilo barroco, hibrido austero, esta edificado este templo que presume la piedra roja volcánica en su maposteo, piedra que se encuentra en un tendido en el mismo bajo suelo y cerros aledaños, de donde fue extraída, además se puede apreciar diversas etapas de la construcción por la variedad de piedras calizas. La planta del templo es de cruz latina con 33 m de largo por 9.5 de ancho y 18.00 m en los crucerosla altura del templo en la nave central es de 13.00 mRecién fue restaurado el interior por el Arq. Salvador de Alba. Dándole ese Señorío monásticoOtra intervención reciente es la edificación



de los pilongos o torreones ya que esta estaba inconclusa. Digno es de verse el atrio con su mosaico de piedra blanca luxor y el petatillo de piedrecillas que escriben toda una época así como el mosaico del interior que deben de preservarse a toda costa. El interior conserva tumbas de predecesores ilustres; y clario al cetro del retablo, la máxima imagen de Cristo en el calvario con la paraphernalia de la preciosa Sangre de Cristo objeto total del templo y de la colonia del entorno.
English translation:The Temple of the Blood of ChristThis temple was built outside the walls of the city. A neighborhood soon formed around it, which later has been identified as a micro-culture in the already singular city of San Juan de los Lagos. It was here on the outskirts of the city on a property along the Royal Road to Guadalajara, all this at the time when Lerdo de Tejada ruled the country in 1872 when construction began on the church in a slow way. By 1900 the central vault was finished but services were carried out in what are currently the sacristies. In 1900 construction was started on the main dome, which was finished promptly. With an austere, hybrid-Baroque style, the temple was built from red, volcanic stone, the same stone that is found in the nearby hills, from where it was extracted. In addition, the different



stages of construction can be seen by the variety of limestone in the church's walls. The plan of the temple is of a Latin cross of 33 m in length by 9.5 m width, with wings of 18 m. The height of the temple in the central nave is 13 m. The interior was recently restored by architect Salvador de Alba.Another recent intervention can be seen in the construction of the "pilongos" or turrets, since they were previously unfinished. It is worth seeing the atrium with its mosaic of white luxor stone and pebbles and the interior mosaic flooring that must be preserved at all costs. The interior includes the tombs of illustrious predecessors. The altarpiece is made up of the main image of Christ in the Calvary with the paraphernalia of the Precious Blood of Christ, the most important object of the temple and the surrounding neighborhood.
