May 26, 2011 | Uncategorized Author: admin

Soledad Basilica (Basilica de la Soledad) - the main religious center of the entire state of Oaxaca - was built in 1682 - 1690 to store the sacred image of the Virgin Mary Soledad, the patron saint of Oaxaca. The statue, decorated with 600 diamonds and a gold crown, since then is constantly kept in this church. In the 1980s, the robbers nevertheless stole the crown and since then a copy has been placed in its place.
