Altar of sorrows

Although a practice that has repeatedly fallen in and out of favor over the centuries, the creation of symbol-filled altars dedicated to La Virgen de Dolores (the Virgin of Sorrows) has served as a traditional prelude to Semana Santa (Holy Week) for generations of families native to Guadalajara and Western Mexico. Observed exactly seven days prior to Good Friday, Viernes de Dolores falls this year on March 27. 

Visitors can view one of these elaborate, candle-lit altars in the Museo de la Ciudad de Guadalajara (City Museum) on Independencia 684, in the city center. The altar will be opened at 6 p.m. on Friday, March 27 and be open for public viewing through Thursday, April 2.
