Former oratory of St Philip Neri

The building of this temple was finished at the beginning of the XIX century. Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla offered the first mass in it. The construction shows the transition from baroque to neoclassic style, mixing elements such as texontle, a complex red stone that makes its facade very traditional, with simple altars and domes. From the outside, many decorative elements can be appreciated, such as the column and medallion chapiters. In the inside the temple looks sober and austere, completely neoclassic.
