Purísima Concepción Temple

Mocorito

In front of the main plazuela you will find this iconic church, one of the oldest in the region and which was built more than 400 years ago by the indigenpus people that inhabited this land under the Jesuits.

It used to be a simple quarry chapel, but as times went by, this was destroyed in order to build a better temple, this is why the building has different styles. For example, its facade is rustic whereas the tower is done in bricks. In general it could be said that its style is rather monastic. Inside this temple you will find 14 engravings from the XVI century. These are one of the treasures of the town.

In the main altar you will find the Inmaculada Concepción, the patroness of this temple that was recently restored. She is accompanied by the images of Saint Miguel, San Rafael and San Gabriel, at the right side of Christ.
