Santo Domingo Church

Iglesia de Santo Domingo de Guzmán

The children of the Spanish and rich landowners were usually taught here in the convent, where the Dominicans gave lessons in Latin, theology, and philosophy towards the end of the 17th century, and for more than a hundred years.

They finished building this church dedicated to Saint Dominic, with its Churrigueresque facade and intense yellow walls, in 1743. Its great benefactor was Don Fernando de la Campa y Cos. Inside you will find paintings from the Viceroyalty era, a chapel dedicated to Saint Francis de Sales and a passageway that leads to the catacombs, which you can visit if you ask the sacristan for permission. To one side of the temple is the old convent of Santa Rosa María de Sombrerete.
