Capilla de Guadalupe

San Luis Potosí State

This fine old 19th-century church has an interesting interior of once-glorious but now very faded and decaying frescoes. Outside is the cemetery which is said to be one of the oldest structures in town. Some of the tombs date to the late 1700s. The church is around 1km north of the town center.
