Temple of the Immacualte Conception, Álamos, Sonora


The church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception stands out in the plaza that replaced the mission the Jesuits built which was destroyed in 1772 due to a riot. The church was built in the second half of the 18th century to be used as a venue of the first bishopric of Sonora. It offers an elegant architecture formed by three main naves. The façade is in the baroque style and preserves some fine furniture made out of wood. The three bells of the church tower tolled during the Colonialism with the peak of mining, in the Independence in 1827 when Álamos was the capital of the West State that put together Sonora, Sinaloa and the Baja Californias, in the Reform in 1865 when the general-pot Antonio Rosales died defending the Republic in 1866 when General Ángel Martínez, with his “macheteros” defeated the imperial troops in a decisive battle. It is, without a doubt, the most representative symbol of the people.
