Iglesia de Santa Teresa la Antigua
Mo to Su from 10:00 AM to 06:00 PMThe Iglesia de Santa Teresa la Antigua visible today, dates back to the 17th century and was part of the convent of the same name. Built between 1678 and 1684, its Baroque-influenced façade follows the style of well-known Spanish architect Jose de Churriguera. The church's most striking feature is its massive eight-sided dome topped with a slender tambour, which was once famed for being the highest in the New World. However, the one seen today was reconstructed in 1859, after an earthquake destroyed the original. This church forms part of the Museo Ex-Teresa Arte Actual, which presents some of the most avant-garde exhibitions of Mexican and international visual art today.
