Árbol de Esquisuchil Sign

This sign is posted inside El Calvario Church, in the garden to right where the Esquisúchil tree was planted in 1657 by the Holy Saint Hermano Pedro de San José de Betancourt, Central America’s only Saint. The Esquisúchil tree has aromatic flowers and it is believed to have curative powers. This specific tree at El Calvario Church was declared Cultural Patrimony of the Nation in 2004 (Source: Prensa Libre). Last but not least is its exquisite architecture and mustard-yellow color. Here are the technical specifications of the Esquishuchil tree.

     There are similar signs and trees in the park across from Escuela de Christo Church and outside the exit from the tomb of Saint Hermano Pedro at San Francisco El Grande Church. I wonder how many more trees and signs like this are in other locations in La Antigua?
