Plaza de Guápulo and Fray Fco. Compte
House of the Franciscan is there since 1620, as a sanctuary away from the city, now it is part of one of the important neighborhoods of the capital. Inside is the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, by the Spanish sculptor Diego de Robles.
The devotion to the Virgin of Guadalupe has its home at the Church of Our Lady of Guápulo. Originally, the devotion was brought by Spanish conquistadors, and the design of the building is a clear product of the Baroque, with a wonderful Baroque and Mudejar-style interior. Inside the sacristy, you can see several paintings depicting the miracles of the Virgin by Colonial artist Miguel de Santiago.
The church has been named an architectural gem of the sixteenth century by several history researchers and art historians, especially due to its characteristic Latin cross measuring 60 meters, and the site has been long considered important as a sacred place of pilgrimage. Works by renowned artists such as Diego de Robles and Luis de Ribera are also exhibited inside.
