Conjunto de la Soledad (Solitude Joint)

Sombrerete

This religious space is made up of El Templo de Nuestra Señora de la Soledad (Our Lady of Solitude Temple), El Convento de las Clarisas Capuchinas (Convent of the Capuchin Poor Clares) and La Capilla de la Santa Veracruz (Chapel of the Holy Veracruz).

In the first case, you will find a Churrigueresque façade with Solomonic columns and figures carved with great detail, such as grapes and flowers. If you look up you will find other saints carved on the quarry and, up to the tip, a virgin also made of stone representing the patron saint, Nuestra Señora de la Soledad.

Next to it is La Capilla de la Santa Veracruz, with a simple facade and an interior completely different from what you have seen before. Before arriving at the altarpiece located in the end, you will find that there are no pews, instead you will find more than a hundred tombs covered by the wood where human bodies that belonged to the nobility still lie.

At the end of the temple, you will see the mahogany altarpiece covered in its entirety by the color gold. This was restored just a few years ago and the exhaustive work took nearly a decade to complete.

Another interesting finding inside the chapel is a crypt where the remains of at least 50 people were found, which for years were hidden under a sacramental space, without the Capuchins themselves knowing of their existence.

The convent continues to be inhabited by the congregation and its members make rompope, liquor, and candy that you can find in Sombrerete.
