This church used to be a convent. The outside is very nice, but the inside is OK; there are more beautiful churches in Mexico City. People go there to pray under the intercession of Saint Judas Tadeo.

This place is devoted to one saint name San Judas Tadeo, if you have faith and believe in this Saint this is a place you should visit, They did not have mass the day we visited so we only took some pictures and went home.

If you are in the area, one of the entrances/exits for the Hidalgo Metro is right by the church, it's worth a stop if visiting Mexico City.…

I visited San Hipolito specifically on Oct 28th for the blessing on San Tadeo. Thousands of people crowded the area with vendors of all sorts selling everything from religious icons, t-shirts, food and water. Getting into the church was an impossibility that day and it wasn't until I returned the day after that I realized the entrance to the church is actually a full set of stairs below street level. It was an interesting experience.…
