Cristero Museum

Encarnacion de Díaz

One of the most relevant historical moments for Encarnación de Díaz was undoubtedly the last stage of the revolutionary war, that of the Cristeros, with battles that took place in this territory, so it’s unavoidable to think that there isn’t a museum about it.

This war, fought in up to three quarters of national territory, lasted three years. About 50 thousand Catholic believers raised against the so-called Ley de Calles (Calles’ Law), which sought to limit and control the Catholic religion in the country.

The building is behind the Parroquia de la Encarnación. Inaugurated in 2005, its collection includes 120 pieces, stooding out prominent figures’ personal objects as well as 350 documents and 240 hours of video recordings documenting the movement in detail.

The documentation center preserves copies of the documents that make up his collection, as well as a map that points to all the Cristero battles that took place throughout Jalisco.
