  3. Sagrario Metropolitano


Considered to be one of the most perfect artistic expressions of its age, this church was constructed in the baroque style of the well-known Spanish architect Jose de Churriguera. The beauty and grace of the building are equaled only by the Cathedral Metropolitan next door. The facade is similar in style to altarpieces for a church's interior, and there is a special resemblance to the Altar de los Reyes (Kings Altar) located within the cathedral itself. The difference lies in the fact that this facade was not created out of wood or gold, as was traditional at the time, but rather of stone flanked by tezontle walls, which accentuates the rich and precise handiwork.

Location:  Plaza de la Constitución
