Mexican Baroque Incorporates Spanish and Aztec Elements of Ornamentation

True liturgical "inculturation."

The Churrigueresque Baroque style from Spain seen on the facade of the Basilica of Mexico City.

Elaborate sculptural ornament marked by florid decorative detailing, especially around the facade and main entrance.

  1. Superb! Then, aztec ornamentation commemorated the evil of bloody pagan worship; now, it celebrates the goodness and greatness of the Catholic Truth!
