The First Church of Irapuato

Begun in 1653, but not finished until 1713, this church was built in the Catholic Church's effort to convert the local Tarascan Indians. It is called the "hospital" because the religious community of the city used it to help treat the local sick and take care of travelers coming through this part of Mexico.

The walls are simple, strong local stone, but towers made from layers of columns are the pride of the city. One of the most interesting features of the church are the Christ statue and other images, made with corn paste.
