Iglesia San Francisco, Guayaquil

4.5
#4 of 11 in Historic Sites in Guayaquil
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.

  • It is a beautiful church in the center of the city, on the 9th of October Avenue. The interior decoration is spectacular, the church is from San Francisco, but, has two altars of Santo Antonio. A place of prayer and faith. It's worth it. Amen!
