San Francisco de Asís Parish Church

The Parish Church dedicated to Saint Francis of Assisi is home of the town’s patron saint and was built between the end of the 16th century and the middle of the 17th century. Inside, on both sides, you will see four baroque altarpieces made of mesquite wood and quilted in gold leaf that were created in the 18th century. Halfway along the central nave the Pintura de las Ánimas (Painting of the Souls in Purgatory) stands out, an oil painting attributed to the New Spanish artist Miguel Cabrera.

It is well worth looking around the church during the festival in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi, which takes place on October 4th.
