Stop At: Templo San Francisco Acatepec, Amozoc, La Purisima San Francisco Acatepec, San Pedro Cholula 72875 Mexico
It was between 1650 and 1750 when the wonderful façade of this church was made and it is considered a masterpiece of Mexican Baroque. The main reason that makes the church of San Francisco Acatepec a great attraction is the gallantry displayed by each of the mosaics that cover it and make it look colorful.
Its fascinating multicolored façade was designed and created only for it; you can see the 3 point mosaics in the form of a triangle up close, and this is because it required rapid construction and it was decided to put more than 2 strips of tiles in the furnace and used 3 sticks to place mosaics on top of each other, this helps to distinguish the originality of the pieces.
The interior of the church is no less important as it houses an incredible architecture, as well as being the only one in the municipality that has two rows of mirrors. The warmth of its fiscals and the people who guard the church are very pleasant and make you feel part of the community.
