Church of Santo Domingo de Guzmán

Cuautla

The most important symbol of Centro Histórico de Cuautla is the Church of Santo Domingo de Guzmán, it is located in the main square and, although its facade has been modified, it is still one of the symbols of the city since the 16th century.

The Templo de Santo Domingo (Temple of Saint Domingo), as it is better known by the people of the city, was built along with a convent in which the Dominican friars lived in isolation.

Although it is still in good condition, it has witnessed events as transcendental as the Sitio de Cuautla, since it served as the fort of General Leónardo Bravo during the independence of Mexico. It was also the headquarters of Emiliano Zapata's army at the beginning of the 20th century.

Another church and ex-convent you should know is San Diego, dating from the 17th century. Its tower is one of the symbols that can be seen from various points of the city.

Follow your journey to the Chapel of Gualupita or Guadalupita, which was founded as a refuge to protect the image of el Señor del Pueblo de Xochitengo (The Lord of the People of Xochitengo), highly valued by the inhabitants of Cuautla in the 17th century. In 1812 it was moved to another sanctuary and an image of the Virgin of Guadalupe was installed in its place, hence the name by which it is known today.
