San Miguel de Allende and the Heartland Sights

Iglesia de San Francisco

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Fodor's Review

This church has one of Guanajuato State's finest churrigueresque facades. The term for this style refers to José Churriguera, a 17th-century (baroque) Spanish architect noted for his extravagant surface decoration. Built in the late 18th century, the church was financed by donations from wealthy patrons and by bullfight revenues. Topping the elaborately carved exterior is the image of Saint Francis of Assisi. Below, along with a crucifix, are sculptures of Saint John

and Our Lady of Sorrows.
