The
Convent of San Francisco

The first temple of the Franciscan Order in the city of Veracruz was built of wood with a small masonry tower. In 1715, in accordance with the decree of "Cal y Canto", this temple was built of coral masonry, under the sponsorship of the University of Mareantes of Seville. In this same year the great-granddaughter of Cortés, Angela Cortés y Arellano, was buried here. She died in 1663 but was transferred to the church when it was built .An important construction located immediately next to the church was the Chapel of the Third Order. This convent was united to the church's north side and was composed of a courtyard with rooms on the top and bottom floors. Due to the confiscation of church property a few years later, it served as a Customs House and large warehouse. On May 5, 1871 the People's Library was inaugurated in the area as the church. In 1872 a lighthouse was installed on the tower of the convent that took its name from Benito Juárez because its installation coincided with the death of the "Most Worthy of the Americas". Finally, in 1964 all religious ornamentation was removed from the former church and it was designated as a place of tribute to President Benito Juárez and the Reform of 1857 which was promulgated in this city of Veracruz.
