VISIT THE SAN FRANCISCO TEMPLE


Get into the heart of Sombrerete and explore a temple that has resisted over time and keeps pieces of history among the red stones that making up the centennial walls.
Be seduced by the striking beauty of the Baroque facade of the San Francisco Temple, much older than the beautiful columns and niches that now decorate the quarry stone front which makes it stand out over the rest of the convent. Look up and admire the beautiful tower that houses the bell tower between Solomonic pillars and admire the square from above.


EXPLORE THE CONVENT OF SAN MATEO


Explore the enclosure of the Convent of San Mateo and get lost in tales of missionary friars hidden in the corners of the old cloister, still home to Franciscan religious. Walk its corridors spread over two levels supported by simple arches of simple pilasters and discreet ornaments and admire the sober elegance of the colonial building.


KNOW THE TEMPLE OF THE THIRD ORDER


Finish your tour at The Chapel of the Third Order, a unique architectural gem in Latin America. Its magnificent façade, carved in the same colored stone that dresses the whole complex, boasts a magnificent Renaissance style that matches the interior with elliptical base, crowned by a wide dome supported on two arches.
