Sanctuary of the Lord of Huaxtla

Tlatlauquitepec

One of the religious temples that have had the most repercussion in this community is El Santuario del Señor de Huaxtla (The Sanctuary of the Lord of Huaxtla), where the figure of the crucified Jesus “ Señor de Huaxtla “ is venerated, carved in the 18th century with wood from a tree that was washed away by a river, to this day those who visit it insist that it is miraculous.

In fact, this site is where the Stations of the Cross begin, which will travel the streets of the town during the Holy Week, ending at the Franciscan ex-convent of Santa María Tlatlauquitepec.

You can reach it by going into Barrio de Huaxtla within the town, it is known that the first construction that gave foundations to the church that is now known, began in 1701 with a wooden house and grass, little by little were added elements such as the presbyter, the bell, the pulpit, and side altars until in 1914 someone burned it to steal the alms.
