AAA Editor Notes
Church of San Francisco is at the corner of Calle San Francisco and Calle Juárez, 2 blks. from the main plaza. Built in the late 18th century, it is thought to be the work of Eduardo Tresguerras, who contributed to the design of many churches in central Mexico. Construction was financed through donations from wealthy families and the proceeds from bullfights.
The intricate stone carvings gracing the exterior are a fine example of the ornate Churrigueresque style. The high-ceilinged interior contains statues, paintings and more carved stone. The church's shaded outdoor courtyard, complete with stone fountain, is a pleasant spot to rest your feet.
