El Hospitalito, Irapuato, Guanajuato, 18th Century

<strong>El Hospitalito, Irapuato, Guanajuato, 18<sup>th</sup> Century</strong>

The XVI Century, Hospital de Indios, was originally dedicated to Nuestra Senora de la Miseracordia de los Indios Tarascos (Our Lady of Mercy of the Tarascan Indians). The present church was completed in 1713; the facade in 1733. The Baroque facade features a half moon with a star in each extreme, which indicates the passage of Venus by the moon-an allusion to the pre-Colombian calendar.
