Iglesia San Francisco, Guayaquil

#4 of 11 in Historic Sites in Guayaquil
Religious Site · Church
Visit Iglesia San Francisco, the city's third oldest church and the symbol of Catholics all over Guayaquil. The building dates back to the very early 18th century when the structure was made entirely from wood, though it has undergone several renovations since that time. The history of the church dates back further to the 17th century, and links inscrutably to the movement of San Franciscans to Guayaquil, bringing their religion with them. The local attendance of this church remains particularly high, so a visit offers a glimpse of local everyday life.

  • This is definitely one of the prettiest churches in all of Guayaquil. The design is beautiful, and the two green spires gave it all its charm.  more »
  • We were surprised at how nice the cathedral was. beautiful stained glass. It is not overly decorated as a baroque cathedral would be. Simple lines. Nice front facing the park.  more »
