    Parroquia de Santa Ana

    Exterior view

    This is an ex-convent designed for (but I believe it was never occupied by) a community of nuns (monjas capuchinas.)
    What I find interesting about these churches is their unique designs and features. For example: twin lateral entrances, the church is not aligned perpindicular to the street - but parallel to it. As I travel around central Mexico I am finding many of these types of "feminine architecture," and they are raising a lot of questions. Others have managed to preserve more of the internal features unique to this type of church, but here the main appeal was the exterior and the relief scultpure of its twin portals.

    Dirección: Gabino Barreda No. 710 Pte. Apartado Postal: 541

    Visita: diariamente de 8:00 a 19:00 horas.
