This Lateran Basilica dedicated to Our Lady of the Assumption has several temples of worship that you can visit and see its sacred representative relics.

It is a mix of gothic and roman styles, built with pink, green and yellow quarry stone. One of its peculiar characteristics is the unique tower in the center of the complex. Inside there is an image of the Virgin of the Assumption carved into wood and that dates back to the beginning of the 18th century. You will also find the Antigua Capilla de San Francisco (Old Chapel of San Francisco), known as “la viejita” (the old lady), because it was built in 1582. Its walls are made of adobe and pink quarry stone. Inside there is an image Immaculate Conception that instead of a crown wears a great crest of feathers.
