San Pedro y San Pablo Teposcolula Temple and Cloister

Templo y Claustro de San Pedro y San Pablo Teposcolula

Located in this Magical Town’s downtown, you’ll spot this church and its cloister immediately because of its immense atrium and monumental structure, built with pink and white limestone in the 16th century. Before entering the church, step into its open chapel, a spectacular construction built to help evangelize the indigenous population. Experience the space’s unique sound and light characteristics.

The interior of this church and cloister offers the best of both worlds: fresh air and natural light coming and going between the columns, walls, and limestone vaults. Go into the church and admire its monumental organ, the confessional carved from a single piece of wood, and the spectacular Churrigueresque altarpiece. The central figure in the piece is the Señor de las Vidrieras, an image of Christ much-revered by the local people.
