  • The is located in the central square of Xochimilco and for the moment you can only see it from the outside since it is under restoration. Right in front of the façade under a large tensile structure it still continues to celebrate Mass. Inside you should see an important altarpiece and a large fresco both sixteenth-century. Until next time.

  • Are they not Catholic? However, they do not have to travel thousands of miles to see one of the few paintings of St. Peter crucified in the world! If this is not them enough, maybe if they review from the exterior architecture of the parish, with its immense walls built in the middle of the last century, Yes, they are not as old as the main building, built by Franciscan Missionaries in the 16th century. If the external support does not impact them, then I invite you to spend so they delight with the altarpiece, a jewel of the art novohispanic, which probably was completed in 1596, including the paint job. And in all Mexico, is one of the few that preserve their structure integrates our socket to the capital. I quote: "the work consists of thirteen meters wide, for almost twenty high. This rests on a predella and has four bodies; as well as seven sections or streets and a central auction. The four bodies are located below upwards. "The architectural orders canonical progression begins with the then Ionic, Doric order then and Corinthian and ends with the compound." would still not interested? Then come to the oratory and enjoy one of the largest of the period paintings, little more than 20 square meters. Or, perhaps more than fresh paint, so I invite you to go up to the 2nd level of the Atrium, where the walls are still the original strokes of the origin of the construction. When you leave, remember to visit the baptismal font and the annex "Third order" composed by a single nave of four sections that correspond to the end of the 17TH century, whose home in a way referencing the temple master, same side-access door It kept a special meaning for the Franciscan order. Yes be Catholic, say it is also gives the Episcopal Vicariate VIII, "San Juan Bautista" the largest in the city of Mexico.

  • A church that seems to have history. It makes me feel very religious. One pico of tacos in a stand in front of the gate is delicious.
  • Beautiful Church!
