Plaza de Santa Veracruz

Désolé, cet article est seulement disponible en Anglais Américain et Espagnol Mexicain.

Plaza de la santa veracruzThis small square dates back to the 16th century. A temple was established here under the patronage of the Vera Cruz de Cristo. With time, the temple and hospital of San Juan de Dios were built and the plaza was left with the two temples facing each other. The temple preserves the carving of the Christ of the Seven Veils, a great popular devotion of the colonial city. A series of beautiful statues are kept within one side chapel. There are also a series of paintings on the life of San Francisco Xavier, attributed to Miguel Cabrera, in another side chapel.
