San Bernardo Mission

Guerrero

The San Bernardo Mission is a silent witness of the passage of the evangelization carried out by the Franciscans to the inhabitants of Guerrero, Coahuila, as well as other neighboring towns including the inhabitants of Texas territory.

In the middle of nowhere, this construction preserves remains of baroque architecture and thick rock walls of up to one meter. Seen from the heights, the central nave has a visible Latin cross shape in the open, since few spaces still have a roof except for the dome that you can still see almost completely.

The construction of San Bernardo marks the origin of Guerrero, Coahuila, and is also decisive in the creation of the Alamo, another mission settled in San Antonio de Béjar, today San Antonio Texas -when it still belonged to Mexico- and where that famous “Battle of the Alamo” took place, which led us to lose the territory in the times of Santa Anna.

To be there is to walk through a past that left indelible traces in the timeline of our history, but at the same time forged a deep love for Mexico that you will be able to perceive through the voices and stories of the inhabitants of Guerrero, Coahuila.
