Located in the historic center of the city of Aguascalientes, Templo de San Antonio is one of the colonial city’s most prestigious historic monuments. It was designed by the famed self-taught architect Refugio Reyes Rivas, and there is no other church quite like it in Mexico.
The church was built between 1895 and 1908 in a pastiche of styles, including neoclassical, baroque, gothic, Arabic, and Russian. The wonderful yellow, green, and pink quarry stone facade seems to change color as the light changes at different times of the day. Other prominent features include the double-stained-glass Russian dome, three dazzling towers, and vaulted ceilings.
