Main Square

The church stands out from any angle. It’s built from bricks with absolutely no coating. Inside, the wood detailing stands out in both the altar and the floor.

The Main Square or Plaza Principal is the setting where you’ll find the old Parroquia de San Antonio de Padua, built from stone over three centuries ago. Today, this parish church houses the Sacred Art Museum (Museo de Arte Sacro), with an interesting collection of religious antiquities.

Across the way, one can’t help but spot the church devoted to the Virgin of Guadalupe. It was built under the initiative of the priest Cipriano González. It’s peculiar in style because it’s built from red brick without any coating. The contrast between the two is striking.
