San Francisco

The Church San Francisco el Grande is located in the city of La Antigua Guatemala. The first sanctuary was built in the middle of the sixteenth century, but it suffered deterioration in the year 1565 because of a strong earthquake. The present church was built in 1702 by Diego de Porres and was destroyed by the earthquakes of 1717, 1751 and 1773.

After being abandoned it was damaged by the earthquakes of 1874 and 1917, until finally, the church was rebuilt during the second half of the twentieth century, after the Guatemalan state allowed the regular orders to have property in the country again and that the Franciscans will be returned to the complex in 1967.
