Inscription.  
Capilla del Espíritu Santo
Construida durante el siglo XVI por los franciscanos como una pequeña capilla para la evangelización de los indios, fue un espacio de culto y devoción religiosa. En 1805 auxilió a la parroquia de Santa Ana en la administración de los sacramentos. Durante el siglo XIX fue punto de peregrinación para la imagen de la Virgen de El Pueblito, considerada patrona de Querétaro. De su fachada original aún se conserva la espadaña con sus campanas.

English:
Chapel of the Holy Spirit
This building began in the 16th century as a small hermitage where the indigenous population could be converted. In the 19th century it was an auxiliary chapel of the parish of Santa Ana. During that time, the image of Our Lady of El Pueblito, patroness of Querétaro, remained here to be visited by devout dwellers. On the façade the belfry with its bells is still preserved.
