Basílica de la Inmaculada Concepción

This contemporary Basilica houses one of the most emblematic attractions of Chignahuapan: the monumental sculpture of the Virgin of the Immaculate Conception.

The sculptor from Puebla, José Luis Silva, carved the image of the Immaculate Conception 12m high for this Basilica between 1960 and 1967. The sculpture, made of cedar wood, is considered the largest indoor sculpture in Latin America under roof.
