Santa Ana de Hornos Chapel and Exhacienda

Viesca

Restored a few years ago, the work on the Santa Ana Chapel brought back the splendour of the Churrigueresque altarpiece in the Chapel of Santa Ana de Hornos, the oldest building in the Comarca Lagunera. Built by the Society of Jesus in 1749, the chapel was abandoned when the Jesuits were expelled in 1767.

The place passed into the hands of Leonardo Zuloaga, who set up a steam locomotive and tram car factory on the estate. But in 1867 the Republican government expropriated the factory to punish Zulooaga, who had been a supporter of the Second Mexican Empire led by Maximiliano I.

The site had been abandoned until, in 2010, after repairing the deterioration and removing the layers of vinyl paint, the restoration was completed. To visit the site from Viesca, one must travel the kilometers that separate the Pueblo Mágico de Viesca from the town of Venustiano Carranza, in the ejido of Jimulco.
