Lonely Planet review for Iglesia Veracruz
A few blocks west of Ruinas Iglesia Santiago are the ruins of 16th-century Iglesia Veracruz, destroyed by a volcanic eruption in 1835. It remains a spiritual center, and as the indigenous counterpoint to La Gritería. On December 7, people gather here for a pre-Columbian festival involving torches and the sun deity on the roof of San Juan Bautista.
