Gothic Tower at Iglesia de San Felipe

San Felipe Church Tower

Earlier this year, on September 30, I showed you the entrance to the San Felipe Church, which is the only gothic church around Antigua Guatemala. This is an exotic tower for this area since must of the façades are colonial Spanish baroque. I will have to dig up the history of the church and post a follow-up photo.

Now, after all the church photos I have posted so far, you might get the wrong impression that I am catholic or christian. Sorry to disappoint, I am neither. However, I do love architecture and churches, as repositories of power and wealth, have always had the money and the authority to show off the best architecture of the time. I believe this to be true for any religious temple in all the cultures and countries of the world.

Have you posted church photos in your Daily Photo about your city?
