Church of San Francisco and Regional Museum of Queretaro
Church and ex-Monastery
The construction of these, the city's first religious building, was carried out from 1540 to 1727.
The church's stone entrance way stands out from the structure's smooth white finish and its robust tower is the highest in the city.
On the inside, there are eleven alter pieces carved in stone, two chapels, sculptures and other noteworthy pieces.
The Ex-Monastery, now on extraordinary Regional Museum, has serene majestic cloisters, where valuable historical pieces are on display.
The permanent exhibition galleries are dedicated to archaeology, ethnography, the viceroy period, Mexican Independence and 19th century Quererato, narrating some of the nation's most important historical stages.
