Guadalupe's Sanctuary

Real de Asientos

Its simple white facade, built in yellow and pink quarry, frames a beautiful figure of the Virgin of Guadalupe who welcomes you above the main door. Inside, some paintings by the artist Teodoro Ramírez illustrate the life of the twelve apostles and Jesus.

Narrow and painted in pastel colors that match the quarry, this temple inspires calm and silence. Without exaggerated opulence, the real treasure besides the paintings lies behind the sanctuary, where we recommend you go to complement your visit.

There, you will find the oldest cemetery in the state, whose construction was the result of a flu pandemic in the 18th century.

As in a large part of the history of humanity, social classes were divided, even in the cemetery, where you can see on a kind of platform, the tombs arranged according to the purchasing power of the deceased.

In this cemetery, lie exclusively the remains of the first wealthy Spaniards who inhabited the region, you will find the skeletons visible through urns as if you were looking through different windows. The remains that correspond to those who were tremendously rich in life are closer to the main altar, as dictated by the beliefs in those years.
