Photographer's Note

The construction dates back to 1641, with its facade of three sections based on dark quarry stone and highlighted in the spaces between the columns by alabaster images. The facade is stopped by a sundial and a small belfry on the other side of the bell tower.
This temple is an icon, representing the religiousness of the people of Huamantla, which is why in the choir of its own parish church there is a baroque organ from the 17th century, still working today to the extent that it is used in concerts and recitals.
