Temple of Saint Francis

Templo de San Francisco

The convent has seen a great deal of history pass it by, considering it has been a military barracks, a meat processor, and a school. It is currently the Municipal Institute of Culture.

The church and its convent were founded in 1603 and they both have the characteristic simplicity of Franciscan architecture. One single barrel nave with no domes, and a facade that has never known any kind of adornment, evoke sobriety. The interior, however, contains three stunning baroque altarpieces.
