Santa Lucia Neighborhood

Santa Lucia Neighborhood

This traditional and picturesque neighborhood is known for the beautiful Church of Santa Lucia, which had its construction started in the late sixteenth century and finished in 1620. Its rectangular entrance framed in stone, stained glass and steeple characterize it. The atrium of the Church of Santa Lucia worked as a cemetery for the City until 1821. In the 50's Torre Gamboa painted a mural depicting the torture of St. Lucia. Santa Lucia park is located in front of the church. The park is also called Heroes Park (Parque de los Heroes). During Spanish rule, this space housed a brotherhood dedicated to assisting patients.
