Las Miradillas


Venue with historical heritage

In the beautiful state of Tabasco, located in Cunduacán, we can find an architectural treasure, the Templo Padre Jesú de Nazaret, better known in this community as Las Mirandillas.

This is the second oldest Catholic temple in the state of Tabasco, since its construction dates from 1724 thanks to the friars of ‘’ The Franciscan order ’’.

It is located in a space of what used to be the ‘’ San Antonio ’’ estate, having different owners over the years until little by little the attendance in the church was decreasing due to its lack of maintenance and use.

Strong temple despite the passage of time

During the years 1919 and 1934, an anti-religious campaign began in the state in which religious images located in temples and private houses were destroyed and Catholic and religious precincts were also demolished. The church of Las Mirandillas was lucky not to be demolished, not being able to destroy it, the followers of this campaign burned the almost 150-year-old image of Cristo Rey, and chose to convert the temple into an educational center.

With the passage of time and through the inheritance of the farm, the temple could be cleaned and arranged in order to restart the celebration of masses and prayers.

This religious heritage is characterized by having a large atrium; its baroque façade sports an insignia of the Spanish imperial crown.

The interior of this beautiful temple is gloomy and austere, its walls painted white with bright red.

It is currently open to the public, you can see the passing of the years in this beautiful and admirable chapel.
