Architecture in the Town Center and Neighborhood Chapels

Discover the architectural landmarks and the sacred treasures they shelter—some date from the 16th century.

Cuitzeo is home to several interesting landmarks in addition to the Santa María Magdalena convent compound. In the town center, there is the town hall, Portal Hidalgo archway, the parish house, Hospitalito (a 17th-century Franciscan hospital), and Santuario de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe church. And scattered throughout the town are the San Pablito, El Calvario, and La Concepción chapels, which date back to the 16th century.

Keep in mind that you can also visit nearby churches such as Jeruco, San Agustín del Pulque, and Cuamio.
