Iglesia San Francisco, Guayaquil
(4.5/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Visit Iglesia San Francisco, the city's third oldest church and the symbol of Catholics all over Guayaquil. The building dates back to the very early 18th century when the structure was made entirely from wood, though it has undergone several renovations since that time. The history of the church dates back further to the 17th century, and links inscrutably to the movement of San Franciscans to Guayaquil, bringing their religion with them. The local attendance of this church remains particularly high, so a visit offers a glimpse of local everyday life. Using our online itinerary creator, Guayaquil attractions like Iglesia San Francisco can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • The Church of San Francisco, also known as the Church of our Lady of the angels, 1 is a Catholic Temple of greater importance within the city of Guayaquil. It was created in 1702 by the Franciscan order, established in the city, which was moved to the old town from 1693. Initially it was built of wood, however, after continuous fires suffered Guayaquil, had several renovations to its current structure. It is the third oldest Catholic Temple in the city.
