  • The Temple of San Francisco de Asis is part of a complex of Franciscan monks arrived in Mexico with the purpose of evangelizing the Mexican natives who professed different religions, one of the oldest in the country and the first convent of Puebla. 5 de Mayo Boulevard and Avenida 14 East, the Temple of San Francisco, the first convent to be established is located in Puebla and in which is venerated the incorrupt body of blessed Fray Sebastián de Aparicio. According to the guide of the religious heritage of Puebla, the Franciscan convent in the city of Puebla is linked to the origins of the city. Fray Toribio de Benavente, was who officiated the mass of its foundation on April 16, 1531. Renovations of the temple construction was completed in 1585; However, like all churches, passed through several architectural and artistic reforms that changed its original appearance. One of the most important was the neoclassical renewal of José Manzo and Julián Ordoñez in 1835, which disappeared in 1970 to return original austerity environment. During the 18th century, was the project of reforming the facade with quarry, red brick and tile, with a design similar to the of the altarpieces in churches inside wood. Merged boards of white earthenware glazed, known as Talavera poblana, with red brick. Each of them presents vases with bouquets of polychrome flowers, branches and leaves, as a symbol of la Inmaculada Concepción, protector of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Puebla. Three canvases of Franciscan theme are preserved on the walls. The first represents "The fruits of the seraphic religion" as concerns it the cartouche that is located in the lower left corner of the work. The second represents the first twelve Franciscans who came to the new Spain, to preach and spread the word of Christ. The third canvas is the most dramatic and has as its theme "The martyrs of Gorkum", representing the martyrdom of 19 monks. Fray Sebastián de Aparicio, patron saint of drivers in one of the chapels of the Church is the body of blessed Fray Sebastián de Aparicio. He is Patron Saint of drivers, since I used to go with their carts loaded with firewood, since his office was that of carretonero. For this reason in the street the newly purchased cars, head to be blessed. According to some legends, the life of Sebastián of Aparicio was always full of miracles. Are features of newly born contracted a disease during an epidemic and his mother left him outside the city; He was rescued by a she-Wolf who bit him, causing bleeding that miraculously healed him. After being widowed twice, he decided to take the Franciscan habit at the age of 71. After testing his vocation, he was accepted in the convent of Mexico and then sent to Tecali and Puebla. During his life of friar, he devoted himself to collect alms to keep to his brothers.  The 20 February 1600 died in the convent of Puebla. After his death, becoming the Foundation of the chapel of the Virgen Conquistadora, found her incorrupt body, which was placed in a table to be venerated by the faithful. This provoked is uprooting her fingers, skin and even came to steal his head in order to obtain relics. The head was recovered in bad conditions, so it was covered with a mask of wax. After his beatification in 1789, permitted public worship by placing his remains in the ballot box that is preserved until today
