Parroquia de Santa María de la Asunción

Tetela de Ocampo

The parish of the festivities

Located in the highest part of Tetela de Ocampo Puebla, you can see the Parroquia de Santa María de Asunción, a house of prayer that has the Spanish Gothic style and that in its interior the patron saint Santa María de la Asunción is exalted, celebrated on August 15.

In other times, during the French intervention in the Tetela de Ocampo Magical Town, great battles were fought in this place, and the Parroquia de Santa María de Asunción, being the highest and most central construction, was used as a strategic military fort.

The only witness that serves as a memory of those clashes is the wall that currently surrounds the church.

Today it is a spiritual site that is used with a nobler purpose than to fight conflicts, inside there are paintings of angels and archangels on the dome of the church, remembering that whoever enters this place will be guided by a guardian.

It is one of the most beautiful destinations in Puebla.
