San Sebastián Bernal in Municipality of Ezequiel Montes, Querétaro, Mexico — The Central Highlands
St. Sebastian's Temple
Templo de San Sebastián
La pintoresca parroquia de San Sebastián Mártir, edificada entre 1700 y 1725, es una de las construcciones más importantes de Bernal, aunque no cuenta con un estilo que predomine; sin embargo, la mano indígena se descubre al observar los detalles de la torre del campanario.
Los vitrales, que fueron colocados posteriormente, brindan, por los colores, una perspectiva original del espacio interior.
En la parte alta del arco de la puerta, se encuentran las iniciales “TA” que corresponden a Tiburcio Ángeles, benefactor que financió el cambio de techo y la colocación de contrafuertes.
Recientemente, su atrio dejó de utilizarse como cementerio.
