Find historic treasures hidden in the center of Sombrerete, one of Mexico’s Pueblos Mágicos (Magic Towns).

VISIT THE TEMPLE OF SAN FRANCISCO


In the heart of Sombrerete discover a temple that has resisted the passage of time and has preserved pieces of history among the red stones that shape its centennial walls.


Let yourself be seduced by the striking beauty of the baroque façade of the San Francisco Temple, which is much older than the beautiful columns added later on, allowing it to stand out from the rest of the convent structure.


EXPLORE THE CONVENT OF SAN MATEO


Explore the Convent of San Mateo and get lost in the tales of missionary friars, which are hidden in the corners of the old cloister, still home to Franciscan monks. Walk its corridors that are spread over two levels and supported by simple arches of pilasters and discreet ornaments. Admire the elegance of this viceregal building.


VISIT THE CHAPEL OF THE THIRD ORDER


Finish your tour at the Chapel of the Third Order, one of the most unique architectural gems in Latin America. Its magnificent façade, carved in the same colored stone as the entire complex, boasts a magnificent Renaissance style. The interior matches the exquisite exterior with an elliptical base crowned by a wide dome that rests on two arches.
