San Esteban, Tizatlán, Tlaxcala, 16th Century

<p><strong>San Esteban, Tizatlán, Tlaxcala, 16<sup>th</sup> Century</strong></p>

One of the earliest chapels in New Spain, the chapel at Tizatlán was built over the former rooms of the palace of Xicohténcatl, one of the lords of Tlaxcala.  Adjacent to a temple dedicated to Xochipilli, the god of flowers, stones from the preconquest buildings were used to build the chapel, hastening the demise of the former temple.
