Iglesia San Francisco, Guayaquil

4.5
#4 of 11 in Historic Sites in Guayaquil
Visit Iglesia San Francisco, the city's third oldest church and the symbol of Catholics all over Guayaquil. The building dates back to the very early 18th century when the structure was made entirely from wood, though it has undergone several renovations since that time. The history of the church dates back further to the 17th century, and links inscrutably to the movement of San Franciscans to Guayaquil, bringing their religion with them. The local attendance of this church remains particularly high, so a visit offers a glimpse of local everyday life.

  • In an excellent location downtown is the San Francisco Church; imposing temple that demonstrates the POWER of the Catholic Church over the Guayaco people. A majestic remplo with a wooden altarpiece bathed in gold leaf that stands out with the lights very well located. It is a museum with beautiful paintings and works of art.
