A charming church
The Magical Town of Santa María del Río, located in the state of San Luis Potosí, houses the Parish of Our Lady of Asunción where several faithful venerate the Virgin of the Assumption.
This church was created on August 15, 1542 and is remembered as part of the Franciscan convent built in the 17th century. Its temple is of a Latin cross with a raised dome over the transept. The facade of this parish is simple with colonial architecture, which, despite being a bit sober, has a religious charm.
It has a two-section tower that raises a belfry with bells and a large low clock. The main altar does not go unnoticed, since it is formed by a quadrangular temple where there is a beautiful sculpture of the Virgin of the Assumption, which is protected by stained glass. There it shares the space with a Christ made of reed superimposed on a wooden cross.
On Sundays that are "market day" where artisans from nearby and local communities of Santa María arrive, they take the opportunity to visit the temple and venerate the Virgin who cradles the Parish of this colonial Magical Town.
