  • Beautiful church with many statues, paintings and other icons emblazoned on almost every square inch of the walls. Parking is easy. Not crowded. And best of all, it is free!
  • Safety pin! The work of Talavera is magnificent. A Mexican pride!

  • Part of the tour of churches in the area: Tlaxcalancingo, Tonantzintla and Acatepec. In 1946 the Temple of San Francisco Acatepec was the scene of some scenes of the film "Enamorada", directed by Emilio Fernández, starring María Felix and Pedro Armendáriz. It is one of the architectural jewels of the State of Puebla and considered a masterpiece of Mexican Baroque. Poblanos potters masterfully covered the facade of the temple with ceramic pieces crafted by hand, using mainly talavera pottery.
