 Capilla de la PurísimaFue la primera iglesia importante construida por los
indios en el lado poniente de la Plaza de Armas, bajo la dirección de los frailes Franciscanos que habitaban en el
convento. Posteriormente se le llamó Iglesia de Guadalupe, posiblemente debido a la formación del Patronato de la Virgen de Santa María de Guadalupe en el año de 1737. Para finales del siglo XVIII se le conocía como la Iglesia Vieja, y a mediados del siglo XIX se le dio el nombre que lleva hasta la actualidad.

Later it was called Church of Guadalupe, possibly due to the formation of the Patronage of the Virgin of Santa María
de Guadalupe in 1737. By the end of the 18th Century it was known as the Old Church, and in the mid-nineteenth century it was given the name it bears to this day.
