The Templo de Belen or the Parish of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, sits in front of the Mercado Juarez.
Bethlemite Monks who came from Guatemala built it as part of an architectural complex which had a cemetery, a school, a group home and gardens.
Today, the temple is the only building which remains, having a Baroque facade and a Gothic style interior.
In its Latin cross plan, we can see beautiful altarpieces made with fine wood imported from Barcelona in the 19th century, as well as oil paintings and passages from the life of the Virgin.
One of the most remarkable characteristics of the Church of Belen is in the vault beneath the main altar that holds about 300 crypts, with the oldest dating back to the late 18th century.
