Rear end of San Francisco El Grande Church

Rear end of San Francisco El Grande Church by Rudy Girón

This is the rear end of San Francisco El Grande Church as you walk south, following the Stations of the cross. As a matter of fact the cupola and roof-top details are part of one of the Stations of the cross.Basically, the route for the Stations of the Cross goes from the San Francisco El Grande church to El Calvario church. You know I hadn’t realized that Iglesia de San Francisco El Grande occupied an entire city block; wow, it’s huge. I take this opportunity to show you the construction materials that were used at the time this section was built: bricks and rocks. I like very much the texture of this wall, everything about it really; how about you?

    I do like this wall; in fact, I spend at least one afternoon at San Francisco el Grande every time I visit ! This church is my favorite so far, with La Recoleccion being my favorite ruins…however, I have many more to see !
