The conquerors of this land wrested enormous mineral fortunes from it, and constructed flamboyant edifices packed with wealth and precious stones, meanwhile enslaving the indigenous population and bankrupting Spain through inflation. This church in keeping with the ambience of Tequisquiapan is modest and simple, the...More

This is a very old church. When you touch the wooden door in the front, you can feel its age. When we visited, there was a wedding. Strangers went up and congratulated the bride and the groom, and everyone was very friendly.

Having seen many cathedrals and churches in Europe, Mexico and elsewhere, there is a quiet and simple elegance to the historic Templo de Santa Maria de la Asuncion. Frequented by many locals, visitors here can enjoy moments in thankful contemplation and prayer.

Beautiful, historic old temple in the center of Tequisquiapan. Be sure to stop by if you're in the area. People wander in and out all day.

To walk around and see the architecture of the buildings around gives you a pretty good idea of how it was in the old days. Great historical place
