Santa Prisca Church

( Sightseeing / Religious Buildings )

A Karen Brown Recommendation
Plaza Borda, #1

One would never dream of finding such an incredibly beautiful church as Santa Prisca tucked away in a small mining town, but then most towns didn’t have such a wealthy benefactor as José de La Borda. When the word trickled to Europe that silver had been found in the New World, a Frenchman by the name of José de La Borda packed his bags and rushed (as fast as you could rush in the 18th century) to Mexico to make his fortune. Finding nothing, he was about to give up and head for home, when his horse slipped and exposed a rich vein of silver. To thank God for this miracle, Borda built the Santa Prisca church, where his son Manuel became priest. No expense was spared and the church is a jewel. Its twin bell towers and ornate dome have become a landmark of Taxco, repeatedly seen on postcards and posters.
