Capilla de San Gregorio
El Cronista Don José M. Zeláa afirma que este
recinto formó parte de la cadena de diez capillas públicas repartidas en los barrios indígenas para su atención espiritual.Durante el memorable Sitio de Querétaro, en 1867, aquí se verificó uno de los mas
importantes hechos de armas. El conjunto está formado por un calvario y dos capillas. La más pequeña, que es la primitiva, está orientada de norte a sur y data del siglo XVII. La segunda capilla, de mayores dimensiones, fue fabricada en el siglo XVIII y se ubica al poniente del conjunto, con la misma orientación. English:
