  • This church is striking for the care for detail, both on the facade and the interior. Inside, the walls are mottled art pieces with all the luxury of the time. It is worth making the trip here.

  • We visited Church is by chance, as it is on the road to Tonanzintla and definitely worth a stopover here. The decor is beautiful!

  • Not to be missed tourist attraction for the before the Mexican art and culture. It is very popular with tourists. In high season it is full of tourists. A church in functions is so it is not always possible to visit it inside when there is mass.

  • Maximum jewel in Talavera of Mexico arriving at this church the first thing that fills eyes is the facade full of work alarifes and poblanos potters, who masterfully covered the facade of the temple with Talavera ceramic pieces made by hand, so it is worth getting a good time there admiring every detail. So this well lit façade, I recommend going in the afternoon, already that the Sun gives you front. In the same way inside the Church is a masterpiece Baroque stucco covered with gold leaves. The temple suffered a fire on December 31, 1939, in which lost its wonderful carved altarpieces in cedar wood, which gave prestige of being one of the five most beautiful temples in Latin America. The Church of San Francisco de Acatepec was rebuilt in 1941. So wonderful is their beauty that has been part of movies, and especially one that is my favorite "Enamorada" Mexican film starring by María Felix and Pedro Armendáriz
