Cuernavaca Cathedral

Cuernavaca

Although it was built in 1525 by Franciscan friars to function as a convent (it functioned such for two centuries), when the diocese of Cuernavaca was established didn’t have a church that could function as a seat, so that they decided to convert this former convent into a cathedral.

The building is one of the first 14 monasteries of the 16th century located on the slopes of the volcano Popocatépetl. UNESCO declared it as a World Heritage Site in 1994 for being a testimony to the first efforts of the conquerors for the evangelization of New Spain.

The aesthetics of the convent represents the spiritual values that characterize the Franciscan Order: simplicity, humility and austerity. The building consists of the Templo de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción and five chapels: the Third Order of San Francisco de Asís, la Virgen de Dolores, la Virgen del Carmen, de la Resurreción and San José open chapel.

Inside the cloister there are several frescoes depicting episodes from the life of San Francisco de Asís.
