Our Lady of Belen Parish

Real de Asientos

The Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de Belén (Our Lady of Belen Parish) has a peculiarity that makes it unique, although its neoclassical style is characteristic of many others at the time, it is not its architecture that we refer to when we say it stands out among many others, but what it houses.

Inside you will find a glass coffin where a dying Christ rests, a work that at first sight seems common among all churches, but this is not the case.

This image known as el Cristo del Santo Entierro (the Christ of the Holy Burial) or in this case, the “Articulated Christ”, is more than 300 years old, the surprising thing is the material with which it is made. The wooden body is covered with cowhide leather, but some of its parts, such as the skull, the ribs and the teeth, correspond to human remains.

Another jewel that this enclosure houses is a bell that was brought from Europe in the 17th century and is the oldest in the entire state of Aguascalientes.
