A Baroque & Neo-Classical church
The construction of the Iglesia de Santa Inés was finished in 1770 and was wonderfully made using a fusion of neo-classical and Baroque architecture as planned by Spanish architect Jose de Churriguera. The church is part of the convent bearing the same name.
You will find the woodworks in Iglesia de Santa Inés very interesting especially the outer doors. The dome of the church is adorned with several bands of tiles that appear like shawls hanging. This wonderful religious site is really a splendid creation that has been attracting visitors throughout the years.
One of the highlights in Iglesia de Santa Inés is the burial site of the famous New World Mexican painter Miguel Cabrera. The church and convent has become a cloister that houses the José Luis Cuevas museum.
