  • The structure looks heavily tilted because of the marshland on which it is built and sustained for earthquakes. Fine example of colonial Baroque together with the neighbor Knows José de Dios, well worth a visit, even if bivouac for homeless people. To see!

  • The statues of Our Lady and Jesus are so beautiful!
  • Along with San Hipolito, the Church marked the boundary West of the city and was one of four churches called "Spanish".  It was established by the religious brotherhood of the Holy true cross, founded by Hernán Cortes, built in 1568 and replaced in the 18th century by the current building. The Churrigueresque Baroque making began in 1760 and was completed six years later. Its façade, crowned by the Archangel Michael, the Holy Cross and the Bishop of Sebaste, reveals his affiliation with the Archbishopric. It contains the seven veils of Christ and the Virgin de los Remedios, which was seen as the protector of the Spaniards, because whenever it was brought to the city, before reaching the Cathedral it was a break in this place. Here lie the remains of the sculptor Manuel Tolsá, author of major works of the period.

  • Even poor in its decoration you that must be considered one of the most large buildings that still survive from the Colonial era, the current design made by Manuel Tolsá retains its colonial charm
