translation:
Sanctuary of Saint Pedro EsquedaTemple of Saint Pedro EsquedaThe importance of this temple is that it is the sanctuary of Saint Pedro Esqueda, martyr of religious persecution. His mortal remains rest in the marble urn, and under it, the precious recumbent sculpture of the martyred priest elaborated by the sculptor Felipe Flores, who also created the various bronzes that make up the group of sculptures. The work includes the reliefs under the altar dedicated to Christ the Priest, which reflects the priesthood of the martyrs that were sacrificed in the historic Cristero War. They are symbolized with 27 crosses mounted on Byzantine tiles. This work was entrusted to the architect Francisco Guzmán García by Bishop Felipe Salazar. The work was done in a Moorish style, which includes octagonal details that project towards the dome in a stepped pattern. The design follows "sacred geometry" (the Golden ratio), which is projected in all of the elements that make up the original design. The bell tower, the new constructed altarpiece made of quarried stone and some other details are not part of the original design.
