San Francisco de Asís Church


san francisco de asis church

This church is located in Plaza San Francisco, near the National School of Sciences.


It was built by order of Viceroy Francisco de Toledo in 1572. The church had to be restored after the earthquake of 1650. Its floor is shaped like a Latin cross, it has 3 naves and a tall square tower. This construction of stone, limestone and pebbles had problems in the closure of its arches and vaults, which were closed at that time, having one of the bell towers only half-built until today.
