Convento San Francisco
Convento San Francisco Review
Every Salteño's heart and soul belongs to the town's landmark St. Francis Church and convent, with its white pillars and bright terra-cotta-and-gold facade. The first temple and convent were built in 1625; the second, erected in 1674, was destroyed by fire; the present church was completed in 1882. The 173-foot-high belfry houses the Campaña de la Patria, a bell made from the bronze cannons used in the War of Independence which sounds once a day at 7:30 pm. In the sacristy, the Museo Convento San Francisco displays religious art.
