Santuario de Los RemediosAntes de establecer la ermita de la Virgen de los Remedios sobre la gran pirámide Tlachihualtepet, se colocó una cruz en el lugar del Teocalli dedicado a la divinidad prehispánica. En 1536 fue derribada por un rayo. Posteriormente colocaron una segunda y tercera cruz que fueron derribadas en las mismas circunstancias que la primera, los frailes franciscanos encontraron en la
cima del cerro caracoles marinos e ídolos prehispánicos enterrados.La construcción de la iglesia se inició en 1594 y fue terminada en 1666. El material con que fue construida la ermita fue tomado de la misma pirámide. Francisco de la Maza hace una interpretacion de las características que pudo haber presentado esta primera ermita: que tenía una fachada de tres cuerpos bien diferenciados, con salientes contrafuertes laterales; la ventana del coro era rectangular y el remate
llevaba un nicho. La torre era de dos cuerpos, a la izquierda de la fachada, el primer cuerpo de sección cuadrada y el segundo en ochavo, con elevado y airoso cupulin De la Maza obtiene esta descripción de una litografía de mediados de siglo XIX. El templo de la Virgen de los Remedios fue reconstruido en 1864, el clero secular intervino en dicha
reconstrucción, incluso la imagen de la Virgen fue trasladada a la pamoquia en 1867 y
estuvo ahí hasta que se terminó la reconstrucción
del templo. Diez años después de ocurrido el temblor, en 1874, la
imagen fue devuelta a su Santuario.
English:
Sanctuary of The RemediesBefore establishing the chapel dedicated to our Lady of Remedies on the Great Pyramid Tlachihualtepetl, a cross was placed
in the Teocalli or temple dedicated to the prehispanic deity. In 1536 was struck by lightning beam. Then a second and a third cross were placed but demolished by the same circumstances of the first one, the Franciscans climb to the top of the hill and found buried snails and prehispanic idols.The construction of the church dedicated to Our Lady of Remedies began in 1594 and finished in 1666. The material of which the shrine was built was taken from the same pyramid. Francisco de la Maza
makes an interpretation of the features that could have this first
chapel, that says "it had a facade of 3 distinct bodies, with projected lateral buttresses, rectangular choirs window with a niche. Two bodies
lower in the left of the facade, the first body of square section and the
second penny (sic, in bronze), with a high and graceful cupola". De la Maza gets this description from a lithograph of the mid nineteenth century. The Cathedral of the Virgen de los Remedios was rebuilt in 1864, the secular clergy took
part in the reconstruction, including the move of the Virgin image to the parish in 1867 where saved until the temple was finished, ten years later, after the tremor occurred in 1874, the statue was returned to the shrine.
