Templo y fuente de Santa Ana
Erigido a partir de una capilla sencilla en 1700, este templo fue elevado a parroquia en 1805 gracias a la iniciativa promovida por su primer párroco, el teólogo presbítero don Félix Osores Sotomayor. El templo y la fuente se encuentran ubicados en el barrio del mismo nombre, en el que habitaban obrajeros y artesanos.

Desde la segunda mitad del siglo XIX ha tenido varias reconstrucciones en su estructura. Actualmente conserva el altar dedicado a la Virgen de Guadalupe y una fuente exterior que servía para abastecer de agua a los vecinos.

Temple and fountain of Santa Ana
Built over a simple 18th chapel, this temple was designated as a parish church in 1805. The designation was made at the initiative of Don Felix Osores Sotomayor, well-known theologian, priest, and politician of the Viceroyalty.

The temple is located in the neighborhood of the same name, as it was called at the time by the residents who lived here and worked in small workshops. There have been several reconstructions since the second half of the 19th century. Today
